Problem in making DFS Sub-Structure available with HTTP on IIS 10.0 RRS feed

  • Question

  • User877943214 posted



    i want to make the "Projects" Part of our DFS Structure accessible by HTTP. (\\company.com\dfs\projects\...)

    • I've installed IIS on Server 2019 (webserver.company.com)
    • Set up an Application Pool "Projects" (No Managed Code / Classic / Identity is a Domain Technical User)
    • Set up a WebSite "Projects" With Application Pool "Projects". Authentication: Anonymous Disabled; Windows Authentication Enabled (No Kernel Mode)
    • Now i've added a Virtual Directory "Projects" which points to \\company.com\dfs\projects


    In IIS Manager i can expand the DFS trees without any problems.

    I can explore every folder

    I can browse it locally by URL (https://localhost/Projects/location/test) (it takes some time until i get the page)


    But when i try to access https://webserver.company.com/projects/ from another computer, i always get a window for username / password . No matter what user i use, the window always reappears.


    ISS Log Message:

    Tried different things.. but with no success. 

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance!
