after migration from 2.0 to 3.0 new users are hindered RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a hosted Sharepoint site that was recentky upgraded to 3.0 from 2.0. Everything seemed to be migrated fine as we are able to access everything and all of the templates seemed to run. (had to change some templates to now be trusted and installed on the client computers. Just for clarity of this question). However, when we add NEW users to the  3.0 site they get prompted with the logon message as usual and expected, however after logging on to Infopath they are then propmted with additonal logon requests that appear to be coming from the server itself. if the users log on to this they do not get any type of error like, invalid password etc. but they just keep getting the logon screen. Infinite loop unless they click cancel, which will open the form, however there will be no data as the server cannot be accessed.

    I have requested that the site hosting people correct this, but it has been over a month with no results..Any Ideas that I can throw at them or fix from my side?

    If the NEW user is added to the site collection administrators group everything works as expected without any errors or additional logons. However this is not the solution, for obvious reasons:-)

    the logon screen that is unexepected has a reference to the site as follows:

    http://mysitename/_vti_bin/lists.asmx referenced above the username text box. (not real site name in here but in the message it is correct).

     

    ANY help or ideas is greatly appreciated.

  • Thanks guys for all your help. It turned out to be a permissions issue on the actual new users. they were being given access by name, but the contributor group was not being applied to the new users. Combining this with adding anonymous access to all the views cleared up the issue.

    Again, thnaks for all your help in pointing me to the right direction.

  • Hi Giuseppe,

     

    Does this situation occur in a specific form? When did the form was created, before or after migration? Can the old user who have same permission work fine with the form?

     

    You can check if the form get data from other location where the user may not have permission.

     

    Thanks,

  • I'd also ask if you've changed domains at all?

  • Hi,

    In your form if anything is referenced from http://mysitername?

    Whether the users have access to this site? If not then try providing read access and check if it helps.

    As site collection administrator is able to access it shows that this must be a permission related issue.

    I hope this will help you out
