SCOM Web Console login error 401.2

After installing the System Center Operations Manager 2007 Web console component on a Windows Server 2008 computer , you may receive the following error message when you try to access the Web console URL:

HTTP Error 401.2 – Unauthorized. You are not authorized to view this page due to invalid authentication headers.

This is due to IIS configuration not configured on the Windows 2008 server.

To fix this issue, install and configure the IIS configuration modules. The minimum requirements are Forms Authentication and Integrated Authentication (Windows Authentication).

Go to IIS,

Navigate to sites – > Default Web Site -> In the Features view double click Authentication

Click Enable on the Actions pane for Forms Authentication and Windows Authentication.
You can ignore the error or warning you will get saying “ Challenge based and login-redirect authentication cannot be used simultaneously”

Hopefully this resolves this error. Let us know if you have any queries.
