I just installed fresh install of windows server 2008 R2. Then I installed wss 3.0 64 bit in the server. Install finished sucessfully, i installed standalone version with Windows Internal Database. Then i created a web application, then Top Level Site collection with Team Site Template asssigned my account as Site Collection Admin.
It completed sucessfully, then i went in and made changes in host file to host it from local host. I ran iisreset after that, then went in tried to open the site, it gave me windows authentication.
So now it didnt let me in, then i went to iis and disabled windows auth and enabled basic it finally let me in and can browse the site.
I dont know why is it doing this, any insights would be greatly appreciated.
