Exception in Admin when configuring an instance



I am getting an exception when I go to configure either a geospatial portal or a web publisher portal from within the Admin console.


The error I get in the log is:


The HTTP request is unauthorized with client authentication scheme 'Anonymous'. The authentication header received from the server was 'Negotiate,NTLM


I am moving a configuration from 1 machine to another.


I have check that the settings in IIS are the same as the originating server.


I have check the bindings in the working server and compared to the bindings in the new server and both are identical.


Has anyone come across this issue before?

Re: Exception in Admin when configuring an instance

Hi Ciaran,


I had the same problem. I tried out a lot of things, but only this worked for me:


You have to enable Anonymous access at IIS although you have a Windows authentication for example.
Enable both in this case.


another thing: Don't restrict the access on other ways, it simply wont work. Use only this option for that at IIS.
