When accessing the internal URL for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 with Claims Based Authentication enabled, a user may be unable to access the CRM site. If Internet Facing Deployment (IFD) is setup, users may be able to access the CRM site still using the IFD URL.

If you turn on developer errors in IIS you may see the following error:

"No Microsoft Dynamics CRM user exists with the specified domain name and user ID. (0x80040354)"

In a CRM platform trace, the following messages may appear:

The SID that is passed below is for a user other than the user that is actually trying to be authenticated:

Physical path credentials are specified in IIS. These credentials should not be in place as this will overwrite the kerberos authentication that is taking place.


1. Go to Start, point to Administrative Tools, click to open Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.
2. Expand the Server and then expand Sites.
3. Right click on the Microsoft Dynamics CRM site and select Manage Website and select Advanced Settings.
4. In the window that appears, find the Physical Path Credentials line and verify it does not contain credentials.
