The MS FTP server by default requires a domain name prefixed on the username. We don’t want this for our FTP users:

1. Change to the %Systemroot%\Inetpub\Adminscripts directory.
2. Type the following:
Adsutil Set MSFTPSVC/DefaultLogonDomain “Domain Name”
Make sure when you type in the Domain Name that it is enclosed in quotation marks.
3. Stop and restart the FTP Service.

This applies to IIS 4 thru IIS7. FOr IIS7 I copied the adsutil.vbs form the inetpub/adminscripts folder on a IIS6 box.
