I am runnig SQL 2008 and Miicrosoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. I cannot
login on the server to the team site I've created. If I go to another machine
on the network I can. What's the problem

You need to modify the loopback check property in the registry of the
server. A google search will give you the key and property.

Answer #2    Answered By: Anibal Baird     Answered On: May 10

This is a new security feature added which prevents you from accessing the
site if the site  URL is different than the server  name.

For example:

Servername: ABCDWFE01
SharePoint Site URL: http://intranet

You will get this error: HTTP 401.1 - Unauthorized: Logon Failed

There are two KB articles related to this:

DisableLoopbackCheck for SharePoint


Error messages when crawling content sources in SharePoint: "Event ID 2436"
and "Access is denied"

Go ahead and fix it using method 2 described in first KB then reboot the
server once.
