Users with limited security still can view all items in the tree and the menu bar in the 6.5 Console
Last Updated February 06, 2007
After security has been setup on the NS a user still sees all the items in the tree and the menu bar. When the user clicks on item the right pane is all gray and it has an error on the bottom that declares "Unable to load the Genreal tab: User... does not have Permission..."
This is easily identified by opening up the 6.5 Console and at the top it shows the logged in user as the Sevice Account or App ID and not the specific user.
Environment NS 6.0 SP3
Security in IIS is incorrect
Resolution Open IIS Manager (start - run - inetmgr) - Web Sites - Altiris - Console - right cliick Properties - Directory Security - Edit (Authentication and access control) - Enable anonymous access is Enabled and Basic authentification is not.
You need disable Anoymous Access and enable Basic Authentification on all the nodes under Altiris.
