I ve already searched for my scenario in this forum so please bear with me as I explain.
I deployed my WebApp to the Test Server and the Production Server yesterday.
I am able to access both the sites.
My colleagues receive the error only on the Test Server and not Production : Server Error 401 - Unauthorized: Access is denied due to invalid credentials. The Connection to the Site is not private.
The code base is the same on both Test and Production. I did not change anything on the preexisting webconfig file in the Test environment.
The Test WebApp used to work earlier with an older code base.
Please help me understand why I dont see this problem but everyone else does in the Test Server and if it is IIS server thats the problem , it used to work earlier with the previous code base.
Thank you in advance

It uses Windows authentication ? You have the same permissions on your app folder on both servers ? Then my first move is to check the IIS log for a substatus and then I search for the exact 401.x error I have.
Ah found https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/david.wang/2005/07/15/howto-diagnose-401-x-http-errors-on-iis/ which seems a good start.
