install problems

Recommended Posts

When installing FM WPE on the FMSA 8.04:

-Windows 2000 Server

Server installs ok, and WPE appears to install ok, but when I go to http://localhost/fmi/conf some strange things happen.

1. I create a username and password - fine

2. I check FMS is on same machine - fine

3. I create a username and password for WPE - fine

4. I go to connect to FM server with ID and passcode (checked and I am entering the correct info).

5. After clicking commit the web browser says "an unexpected error occurred"

6. I go back and try to do this again and I login to window 1 ok, but then when I want to configure the WPE and try to enter my Username and password, which I know are correct, it says username or password unknown! I know they are correct.

I reinstalled a few times, check that IIS is behaving nicely, but the same thing happens everytime I try to commit the connection to the FMSA.

Well I solved it...

Apparently, even though I know I did this...

IIS authentication had not been set correctly.

I went back into IIS and click the Authentication:

Made sure anonymous was check and all other methods were off and hit the "apply" button, before I hit the "OK" button. And now I could register and configure the WPE.

As you discovered, and as is docuemented IIRC in the install guide, IIS authentication must be set to anonymous. There are some exceptions to this, but that is the general rule.

The weird thing is:

I followed the directions and was sure I had set IIS authentication correctly.

But thats Windows for you.

No, it's not Windows. Windows OS works just fine for these circumstances.

What is unfamilar to some folks is the need to click the Apply button before clicking the OK button. I have been caught out here myself on occasion.
