Site collection access to users RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am new to Sharepoint and my project is on MOSS 2007. I have created a new site collection within an existing web application which has windows as authentication provider settings. While the users are able to access the other sites in the web app smoothly. They get user credential prompt when they try to access this new site. Please suggest what settings need to be done to disable the user credentials prompt. Also, how can I replicate the same authentication settings as those followed by the other site collections in the web application.

  • Check whether the site is included in your intranet zone within Internet Explorer, otherwise credentials won't be pass through automatically.

  • Is the new site in same web app in which they are not getting prompt ?

    if it is from a new web. Is that web app using NTLM or Kerberos - You can check this settings from central admin - App management - Authentication provider

  • Please do check the following

    1) User which you are logging are having access to the new site collections or not

    2) Do add the site in the local intranet sites in internet explorer

    3) On your internet explorer>tools >Internet options >security >custom level

    scroll to bottom and select automatic loggin with ccurrent username and password

    4) After the settings you would be promopted once please do save the password by checking the box remeber the password that should maintain cookie session to pass on the credentials


    hope so this helps you
