IE 7 prompts for username adn password continously for sharepoint 2007 site hosted on IIS7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have hosted a sharepoint 2007 site in IIS 7. It has Integrated Windows Authentication enabled in it. When i try viewing the site in IE 7. It continously prompts for the username and password. I can see the site even if i just click on cancel when it prompts for the username and passowrd. This behaviour is not there in any other browser.

    How can we resolve this issue where it asks for the username and password only once????

    Regards,

    Sharath

  • Hi,

    Check if your site is added in Intranet Security Sites..

    I hope this will help you out.

  • Hi Sandeep/Rahul,

    I have added the site in the trusted sites as well as the Intranet as told by you. But still no success.

    Is there any compatibilty issues with the sites in IIS 7 and IE7 browser???

    Regards,

  • Are you browsing the site on the server itself or from a client computer?

  • Its from a client computer.

    Actually some one here pointed out that the issue is something like the one specified in the following link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927265

    Did not really understand what it is.

  • Sharath,

    Can you try using fiddler and watch the activity, that would exactly say what the browser is trying to do and identify the issue.

  • By default IE automatically logs in using your current username and password for sites in the Local Intranet Zone only (Internet Options - Security - Local Intranet - 'User Authentication - Logon - Automatic Logon Only in Intranet Zone')

    If you put the site in both Trusted Sites and Local Intranet, the sites will be treated as a Trusted Sites and the automatic logon will not work.

    Try removing the site from the 'Trusted Sites' and place it in the Local Intranet zone only.

    If you get several prompts when opening a page, there might also be somethign wrong with the ACL's (permissions on the files) on your web server.

  • Hi Sven,

    We have made these changes and tested. It did not work out.

    I am trying to narrow down the reason for this day by day. Now my analysis has come down to a stage where all Non-Sharepoint sites are working on IE 7 and it is only the Sharepoint site who is culprit asking for the username and password many number of times.

    Regards,

  • Have you previously logged on to the site with an account that now doesn't have access?  Run "control keymgr.dll" from "Start" > "Run" and just make sure it's not stored any usernames/passwords.

  • Hi,

    Do not know what the problem really was. After exploring much we came to know that it was something related to the NTLM authentication. We are currently running the Digest authentication for those SharePoint sites and everything looks good.
