We have a backup Domain controller running server 2003. Each time I try to access the website, I get an error message : "you are not authorized to view this page". I went to the directory security tab on the website properties on IIS and checked "enable anonymous access". I then unchecked every other options. I want the website to be accessed without authentication. I then tried browsing on the server and also from a client and received the same error message. The Primary domain controller does not prompt you for authentication. I then decided to check the anonymous user for IIS, the account was enabled, and was part of the Guest group. Why am I still having this problem? Or does Backup domain controller do not accept web connections.

Make sure that the IIS user has NTFS rights to read the folder which the web page is in.
