WSS 2.0 to WSS 3.0 migration now have credential issue

  Asked By: Luz    Date: Aug 17    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1768

I did an in-place upgrade from an existing WSS 2.0 SP2 to WSS 3.0 SP1 -
with little issue, however, when user's now try to access the WSS
sites, they are continuously asked for their credentials. The user's
hate this.

IIS is set for Integrated Windows authentication for the WSS 3.0 site.
I am not sure how to fix this - all the user's and user groups are
still listed under permissions on each of the sites. Any thoughts?

Review the WSS_ADMIN_WPG local group on the server and ensure the SP
service account is listed  there. You could also update the farm
credentials using the STSADM tool.


C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server

dm -help updatefarmcredentials

stsadm.exe -o updatefarmcredentials

[-identitytype <configurableid/NetworkService>]

[-userlogin <DOMAIN\name>]

[-password <password>]

[-local [-keyonly]]

Also, review the log files located at c:\program files\common
files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\Logs for any errors.
