I was installing SCOM 2012 R2 Preview today and after the installation I’ve tried to access the Web Console to see if it is healthy but I’ve received error “The user credentials are invalid or user does not have permissions to access the application”:
For sure my account had access as I was working in the Operations Manager console at the same time.
How I solved it?
I’ve started IIS Manager and check what authentication methods are enabled. Windows Authentication was disabled so I’ve enabled it:
After that I’ve logged to the Web console without problem. This is not specific SCOM 2012 R2 preview issue I am sure it could be met in older versions as well.
