Use the Provide Credentials wizard page to specify credentials to connect to a server, site, or application by using IIS Manager. The credentials specified on this page can be either Windows user accounts or IIS Manager user accounts.

If you receive an error when you try to connect to the server, check for the following possible issues:

  • You mistyped a value, such as the server name or user credentials.

  • The Web server to which you are connecting is not running IIS. You cannot use IIS Manager in IIS to connect to a Web server that runs a previous version of IIS.

  • The management service is not started on the Web server.

  • A Firewall rule is preventing the connection.
