Anonymous access not working on subsite on an anonymous site RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    Everything was working ok with the anonymous subsite and now it is not anonymous anymore.

    How can I put it anonymous again if it is inheriting permissions from parent?

    I have two farm: Farm A (content editing) and Farm B (With the anonymous site updated by content deployment).

    I have no problems with the content deployment because everything is updated and I can see it with the admin account but anonymous users cannot access it.

    Thanks for all the help.

    Best Regards,

  • Hi,

    So it was working just fine earlier and suddenly it stopped working? I am sure you checked both AAM (which will set IIS) and then Site Settings (full access possibly in your case) as per this post by Bil Simser:

    Can you please check IIS just in case once whether Directory Security is showing Anonymous Access?

    Thanks, Soumya

  • Hello Soumya,

    Thank you for you reply. I did all that and everything is ok with the anonymous access. The problem was just with one subsite.

    Meanwhile I backtracked all the changes and they were the following: The user changed the physical name of the page that was the welcome page of the subsite on Farm A; The incremental content deploy was successfully to Farm B; The subsite on Farm B was not available to anonymous users.

    I still cannot figure out if this caused the problem or not.

    I solved the problem by recreating the subsite welcome page and everything is ok again.

    Best Regards,
