SharePoint install problems

  Asked By: Eugene    Date: Aug 24    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 736

I'm very new to SharePoint and I try do to an installation of in in out
test environment to see how it works, but it seems I have a lot of

I do the installation for CD kit, everything works fine, but when to go to
admin page it gives some 'unauthorized' error page.

From IIS management I see web site is running ok.

I learn to install service pack 1 -
support.microsoft.com/default.aspx - which
should solve "Not authorized" error message, but I still get it.

I learn to change IIS authentication method to Basic authentication as
recommended here: http://support.microsoft.com/?id=829065

Now, if I try to use SharePoint Central Administration it seems to try to
connect to something like http://localhost:xxxx/sps/Default.aspx but also
it asks user name and pwd several times and finally still display "You do
not have permission to view this page. " error message.

I have no idea what I'm missing.
If anybody can give me some advise on making SharePoint work I'll
appreciate very much.

I'm coming back with my install  problem, I haven't found a solution to it

I try do to an installation  of SPS in our test environment  to see how it
works, but it seems I have a lot  of problems.

I did run the installation from CD kit, everything works  fine, but at the
end when it suppose to go to admin page  it gives some 'unauthorized' error

From IIS management  I see that web  site is running  ok.

learn  that service  pack 1 -
support.microsoft.com/default.aspx - should
solve "Not authorized" error  message, but I installed service pack  too but
still get unauthorized  error page.

I learn to change  IIS authentication  method to basic  authentication as
recommended here: http://support.microsoft.com/?id=829065.

Now, if I try use sharepoint  Central Administration it tries to connect to
something like http://localhost:xxxx/sps/Default.aspx it asks  user name
and pwd several times  and finally  display "You do not have permission  to
view this page. " error message.

If I keep connection settings as anonymous I got "401 UNAUTHORIZED" page.

I have no idea  what I'm missing.
If anybody can give  me some advise  on making  SharePoint work  I'll
appreciate very much.

I met this problem too when I try to install  the sharepoint, this is because
I am using the administrator account in domain for sps administrator. The
solution is:-

I create a new account which has the authority of power user/administrator,
reinstall the sps and key in the new user  account as sps administrator.

p/s u can create a new virtual server in IIS, then install sps on it in
stead of using the default web  site.

I guess something is wrong with user  I used.
I'll try a new install.
