IIS7 Loopback Issue and the FIM Portal

This issue is nothing new, but it did bite me when setting up a FIM 2010 RC1 portal under a custom URL, so I thought I would share.  When accessing the FIM portal from another server or workstation, integrated authentication worked fine, but when accessing it from the FIM server itself, you were prompted for authentication 3 times, and then ultimately denied.  With security auditing enabled, a logon failure was shown in the Event Log (see below).  From there, I came across this blog post which discusses an IIS change introduced in Server 2003 SP2 (aka the IIS loopback issue).  That post also mentions this KB article, which works for Server 2008 even if it doesn’t say so.

This event is generated when a logon request fails. It is generated on the computer where access was attempted.

The Subject fields indicate the account on the local system which requested the logon. This is most commonly a service such as the Server service, or a local process such as Winlogon.exe or Services.exe.

The Logon Type field indicates the kind of logon that was requested. The most common types are 2 (interactive) and 3 (network).

The Process Information fields indicate which account and process on the system requested the logon.

The Network Information fields indicate where a remote logon request originated. Workstation name is not always available and may be left blank in some cases.

The authentication information fields provide detailed information about this specific logon request.
    - Transited services indicate which intermediate services have participated in this logon request.
    - Package name indicates which sub-protocol was used among the NTLM protocols.
    - Key length indicates the length of the generated session key. This will be 0 if no session key was requested.
