SPEasy Setup Scripts: Gotcha!

A workmate of mine just recently used the SharePoint Easy Setup Script to setup a Windows 7 machine for SharePoint development. Upon trying to browse newly created Web Applications with host headers he was prompted to authenticate but these authentication attempts always resulted in a 401.1 error.

It turns out that the easy setup scripts don’t disable the loopback check. Luckily that has a well documented and easy fix which can also be done via PowerShell.
