I have Installed my AD on windows server 2008 and having a web based application hosted in IIS6 on windows server 2003. My system authenticates users from the AD.
Problem I have is my system users need to enter domain name with the user name in order to log in successfully.
Before I installed my AD in 2008 It was in a 2003 server which was not needed to add domain name with the user name.
I don't know this is a AD problem or configuration problem in IIS.
Now i need to log in to the system without adding domain name with the user name. Help me to solve this pls.

As far as I remember, the domain was there in the name in 2003, and that change might be related to your setup.
Actually, it is not clear how you authenticate users and why you do not use the integrated windows authentication. Maybe you can explain it in some more details.
If you mean that your current problem is that you stored all accounts somewhere in a database without domain and now, when domain is required, you cannot authenticate, then simply update your database and add domain to all names.

Do you use basic authentication ? This web server is not in the same domain than your users ?

Thanks smirnov and Patrice,
I use Basic authentication and as mentioned in the link Patrice provided I added my domain name under default domain box and my problem solved :D
"In the Default domain box, either type the domain name you want to use, or click
Select to browse to a new default logon domain. If the Default domain box is filled in, the name is used as the default domain. If the Default domain box is left empty, IIS uses the domain of the computer that is running IIS as the default domain.
IIS configures the value of the DefaultLogonDomain Metabase Property, which determines the default domain used to authenticate clients accessing your IIS server using Basic authentication. However, the domain specified by DefaultLogonDomain is used only when
a client does not specify a domain in the logon dialog box that appears on the client computer."
