I have discovered what appears to be a bug with the Integrated pipeline vs. Classic mode setting in IIS7.
After setting up a new site in IIS7, I found that when logging into the admin site (http:www.domain.com/sitefinity/admin), I could log in successfully, but would always be redirected to the login page (...sitefinity/login.aspx), instead of the expected redirect to the dashboard (...sitefinity/admin/default.aspx). I checked the IIS default documents and DID have default.aspx listed under ...sitefinity/admin, however the default document was not being recognized. I could, however, reach the dashboard by entering the complete url in the browser (...sitefinity/admin/default.aspx) after a failed login redirect.
After changing to "Classic" mode, this problem goes away. You may want to look into this for a future release.
