Active Directory Integration: Configuring IIS
In order for IIS to authenticate against an Active Directory, you must disable anonymous access and enable Integrated Windows authentication for the server (or specific directory) where your MIDAS room booking and resource scheduling system resides.
Configuring IIS 7+ for Active Directory IntegrationThe default installation of IIS 7.x (and later) does not include the Windows authentication role service. To use this authentication on IIS 7.x (or later), you must install the role service, disable Anonymous authentication for the server or directory where your MIDAS booking system resides, and finally enable Windows authentication for the directory/site.
- Open the Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.
- Navigate to the site/directory where your MIDAS resides, and click "Authentication":
- Right-Click the "Anonymous Authentication" entry and select "Disable":
- Right-Click the "Windows Authentication" entry and select "Enable":
If the "Windows Authentication" option isn't present, you will first need to install the Windows authentication role services.
