IIS Manager Authentication RRS feed

  • Question

  • User1345905915 posted


    I'm trying to get IIS Manager Authentication working with FTP 7 / IIS 7.

    I found some info from (http://www.trainsignaltraining.com/windows-server-2008-ftp-user-authentication/2008-04-30/) . 


    When I'm setting up rights with CALCS, it says "Invalid Argument."

    1. CACLS “%SystemDrive%\Windows\System32\inetsrv\config” /G “Network Service”:R /E
    2. CACLS “%SystemDrive%\Windows\System32\inetsrv\config\administration.config” /G “Network Service”:R /E
    3. CACLS “%SystemDrive%\Windows\System32\inetsrv\config\redirection.config” /G “Network Service”:R /E

    I guess I need to do something like that... But what is the right syntax?


    Thank you for your help,

    Sorry, wrong topic.. Answer also found



    If the “Network Service” account did not have proper rights(Read access) on the specified config file, you will receive this error message.

    I  have Convert the CACLS command to ICACLS command, please try the following command:

    ICACLS "%SystemDrive%\Windows\System32\inetsrv\config" /grant "Network Service":R
    ICACLS "%SystemDrive%\Windows\System32\inetsrv\config\administration.config" /grant "Network Service":R
    ICACLS "%SystemDrive%\Windows\System32\inetsrv\config\redirection.config" /grant "Network Service":R

    ICACLS "%SystemDrive%\inetpub\ftproot" /grant "Network Service":(M,W)

    If problem still persists, please update here.
