I am setting up commerce server site. But I can't access CSServices site. I followed all steps mentioned at commercesdn site:

  • Create a folder named C:\inetpub\CSServices\ In IIS, add a new website named CSServices, with the physical path pointing to the folder that you previously created.

  • Make sure this IIS site listens on port 1004, which will be used in a later stage. Create a new app pool "CSServices", and set its identity to .\CSFndRuntimeUser Depending on your IIS hostname binding, you may need to disable the loop back check. Please refer to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/896861 for more details.

I run commands to grant admin rights as well.

But can't access following url: http://localhost:1004/CFSolutionStorefrontSite_CatalogWebService/CatalogWebService

It is showing below error: HTTP Error 401.2 - Unauthorized You are not authorized to view this page due to invalid authentication headers.

You need to make sure:

1- the user CSFndRuntimeUser is an administrator

2- on the CSService on IIS you set Windows Authentication and Anonymous Authentication as enabled

2.1 - on the Catalog and Profile sites on IIS you set only Windows Authentication as enabled

  • Set CSSServices authentication to Anonymous
  • Set CSSServices\CFSolutionStorefrontsite_CatalogWebService authentication to Anonymous
  • Set CSSServices\CFSolutionStorefrontsite_ProfilesWebService authentication to Anonymous
