Authorization Required error on login


  • More commonly caused by an invalid password
  • A user account that does not exist
  • Not able to connect to Active Directory

Can the user log in with the local account?

Are there any errors in the error log that are related?

If not and they have access to the webconfig file, can they verify a local account is populated and has a password?
