In order to recreate a SharePoint 2010 production environment, I created a Web Application with Host Header and an empty Site Collection on it .
But when I tried to connect to it form local IE Browser I received the same user & password prompting as in the MOSS 2007.
The fix is similar to the old one:
- Click Start -> Run -> and type regedit.
- Browse the following path: HKLM -> System -> CurrentControlSet -> Control -> Lsa
- Create a new DWORD (32 bits) key and type DisableLoopbackCheck.
- Double-click on it type 1 in the value box.
- Restart the server.
Just one more thing: please do not apply this on a production server….
