- Create an account on the UNC server that has the same username and password as the user account that is being used to access Web pages on the IIS server. Both the connect as user and the authenticated user (the user that is connecting from the Web browser) need to have the appropriate new technology file system (NTFS) permissions on the UNC share to access the content. Note that the files on the UNC server should be treated as content.
NOTE: If you are using anonymous authentication, by default this is the IUSR_ServerName on the IIS server. However, if you are using Basic authentication, any user account that browses UNC-mapped content must have a security context on the remote computer (that is, either a domain account or each corresponding username and password must be created on the UNC server).
- Note that the files on the UNC server should be treated as content.Promote both the IIS and UNC servers to be domain controllers in the same Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 or Microsoft Windows 2000 domains. This works because domain controllers share the same security accounts database.NOTE: Microsoft does not recommend installing IIS on a domain controller, due to the performance degradation that is caused by authentication and other domain functionality that is provided by a domain controller.
NOTE: One exception to this implementation is domain controllers that are in the same domain, which all share the same security database and can manage resources on other domain controllers that are in the same domain.
