When attempting to connect to the Web Console, you get one of the following errors:
A global config setting for IIS is preventing the Web console from being accessed.
- Open the applicationHost.config file located in .../System32/inetsrv/config
- Locate these sections:
- <location path=" " overrideMode="Deny">
- <section name="validation" overrideModeDefault="Deny" />
- Other locations within the file could cause the issue as well. Typically, there is a Deny somewhere that is prohibiting this site.
- Change "Deny" to "Allow"
- Restart IIS
