SharePoint - SharePoint 2010 not logging in on server

Asked By Chester Thomas on 22-Jan-11 04:23 PM
I did a SharePoint upgrade from 2007 to 2010 and all seems to be fine. I cannot however log in to any of my web applications on the actual server I installed SharePoint on. I keep getting prompted for login details - on both IE and firefox. I can log into central admin with no problems. Can anyone help.

Hi Chester,
Please try to check for Site Collection Administrators list. If there are not users the first try to add user to this list and try to login.

Everything is fine for site collection admins. I can access the site fine on other machines but just not on the server where SharePoint is installed which is a WFE

Thanks for your effort, I managed to get it to work.

New-ItemProperty HKLM:\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa -Name "DisableLoopbackCheck" -value "1" -PropertyType dword

running that command in powershell resolved it.
