i installed new sp 2003 standard trial on w2k8r2sp1 and my domain is on 2003 server with exchange 2003 on seperate system, sp machine is a client of DC, at start up it was working fine, the default page was accessible but when i tried to change authentication method, from NTLM to kerberos now PAGE NOT FOUND error,

i deleted the default web application and re installed but the error is same , i tried to fix it from IIS but i think i messed up , i can open central admin but default port 80 page is not working . some time i get connection close with full information of iis 7.5 etc. i can see only this on page below :::

HTTP/1.1 200 OK Server: Microsoft-IIS/7.5 Date: Sat, 23 Mar 2013 17:17:57 GMT Connection: close

i tried it from localhost, system name , ip from the network but no luck .

any idea ? its my development sp but i am worried if i go for production i might happend again ..

your help is appreciated :)

did you created a site collection on that web application? as you are accessing from local machine, did you disabled LoopBack check?? –  C. Marius - MVP Mar 23 '13 at 19:45
