"Failed to disable Anonymous Authentication in IIS for the IWA application"

Hi,

I enabled HTTPS authentication on the IWA for Desktop SSO. Once I toggled off and on a coulpe times I couldn't get it to sign me on even on HTTP. So I uninstalled the Okta SSO IWA at which point I got a complaint that it couldn't remove the IWA website (? or something along those lines), and it gave me some line to put in powershell to remove it I believe. Which I didn't do. Now when I go to install it, at the very end it gives me the error in the subject. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

Hi Sam, 

I see you have an open case for this request, I too would recommend re-installing IIS and try re-installing the Desktop SSO IWA Application. 

Please let me know if that solves your issue.

Thanks!
Nate
