Weird IIS issue - IE works, Firefox partially loads, Chrome doesn't connect at all

    General discussion

  • I could use some help on a weird issue I've been experiencing.

    I've deployed a quick test Server 2008 R2 Enterprise virtual machine, set it up as a primary AD controller, DNS and IIS 7, that's all. I've created a test forest and domain, a few users, really simple stuff, and haven't doesn't DNS. IIS is all completely default as well except I added the Basic and Windows Authentication features and .NET extensibility. This is just a test box to try out some basic IIS/AD interaction.

    The issue is this: if I connect to the server from another computer (Windows 7, outside of the domain), the default IIS page loads fine in IE 11, but in Firefox 30 only the text loads (no images or css files), and Chrome 35 refuses to connect at all. However, if I run Fiddler on the client machine, all browsers work!

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! I'm happy to paste any and all logs you think would be useful.

  • I wouldn't install IIS on a domain controller even for testing. I'd ask them about IIS issues over here.

  • Thanks. This was only supposed to be a quick half hour test (hence the single server), but which has rapidly become a whole day's headache!

    I'll try the IIS forums to see if anyone can shed any light on this.

    Cheers.

  • Installing IIS on the DC may be the proverbial "shot myself in the foot" approach.

     Also I wouldn't take that blog as an extensive list of the potential problems.
