  • Hi,

     

    Did you try my second suggestion in the previous reply? If not, please try it.

     

    Please enable IIS log and check the susstatus code, there are two common ways to identify the substatus code:

     

    ·         Starting in IIS 6.0, the substatus code is logged in the Web logs. The Web logs are located in the following location:

    %SYSTEMROOT%\System32\LogFiles\W3SVC###\

     

    ·         In versions of IIS earlier than IIS 6.0, the substatus code is not logged in the Web logs. In these cases (or in cases where you don't have access to the Web logs), you can use the information sent back to the browser. In Microsoft Internet Explorer, you will have to disable the Show Friendly HTTP Error messages setting.

     

    Base your troubleshooting on the substatus code

     

    Once you know the HTTP substatus code, focus on issues related to that particular substatus. All others can be ignored.

     

    For the detailed information about troubleshooting HTTP 401 errors in IIS, please refer to the following article:

  • Hi,

     

    According to your narration, you had enable anonymous access on your site, however it didn’t take effect until 3 day later. Then you restored the root site, now you encountered 401 unauthorized error.

     

    As far as I know, this error is common. Many reasons could result in this error. Firstly, I suggest that you use Authentication and Access Control Diagnostics, or AuthDiag to analyze this question. You can download this tool from the following Microsoft Download Center Web site:

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=e90fe777-4a21-4066-bd22-b931f7572e9a&DisplayLang=en (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=e90fe777-4a21-4066-bd22-b931f7572e9a&DisplayLang=en)

    This tool is also part of the IIS Diagnostics Toolkit that you can download from the following Microsoft Download Center Web site:

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=9bfa49bc-376b-4a54-95aa-73c9156706e7&DisplayLang=en

     

    Secondly, please check if you have added some web part in your site, if so, disable or remove them temporarily, then check the effect.

     

    Thanks,
