If the passwords in User Manager and Internet Server Manager are not identical, you will get the following error message:
If in User Manager, under account policies, the Account Lockout security feature has been selected, and the passwords for the anonymous Internet account (IUSR_machine-name, by default) are different in User Manager and Internet Service Manager, then when you establish an anonymous connection, you will get an incomplete header message returned the first time. On subsequent login attempts, you will get the following error message:
This occurs because IUSR tried to log onto the server with an incorrect password. After x attempts (where x is defined in User Manager, Policies, Account, Lockout after x bad login attempts), the account becomes locked out.
To restore this account, you must first go into User Manager, open the properties for the account, and clear the check box in the account locked out check box. Next, you must change the passwords in User Manager and Internet Server Manager making sure that they are identical.
