This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
SYMPTOMS
When you use directory service certificate mapping to authenticate the users with a client certificate in Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS), the user may receive an access denied error, although the access rights are set up correctly.

This only occurs with the following configuration:
  • The user account is a member of a domain global group.
  • The domain global group is a member of a domain local group.
  • The access rights are granted to the domain local group.
