[SPLIT] Slightly different authentication issue
Ok so my problem is a little different. I am running windows server 2003 r2 with iis 6 anonymous authentication is turned on. Every 12 to 24 hours or so (the length it is up seems to be random) I start getting 401.1 errors. If i log onto the server and restart the IIS Admin service the 401.1 goes away and anonymous authentication starts working again for another 12 to 24 hours or so. Anybody ever see this or now the fix?
