Hello, I have been attempting to remove the WindowsAuthenticationModule by placing <remove name="WindowsAuthenticationModule"/> in the system.webServer -> modules section of my web.config. This results in the following error: HTTP Error 500.19 - Internal Server Error The requested page cannot be accessed because the related configuration data for the page is invalid. Detailed Error Information Module IIS Web Core Notification BeginRequest Handler Not yet determined Error Code 0x80070021 Config Error Lock violation I believe this is an issue at the parent level of the site as detailed when I tried to also use <windowsAuthentication enabled="false" />: This configuration section cannot be used at this path. This happens when the section is locked at a parent level. Locking is either by default (overrideModeDefault="Deny"), or set explicitly by a location tag with overrideMode="Deny" or the legacy allowOverride="false". Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
