Issue/Introduction

Windows Event Application logs get frequent information level entries, logs may become flooded under certain unclear circumstances, which can hinder work.

In essence the issue should have little to no impact on performance/usability.

Login failed for user 'IIS APPPOOL\Classic .NET AppPool'. Reason: Token-based server access validation failed with an infrastructure error. Check for previous errors. [CLIENT: <local machine>]

OR

Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON'. [CLIENT: <local machine>]

Cause

 This issue is a minor configurational issue with IIS 7.5. No functionality loss is expected.

Resolution

 

Go to Server Manager

Under Roles>Web SErver (IIS)>Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager>(Server Name)>Sites>Default Web Site>Altiris>Task Management

In the Right pane window under Authentication (Double Click icon)

Then enable Anonymous Authentication

The errors in the SQL Logs should go away.
