Users being prompted continuously for UN/PW when accessing SharePoint Intranet Site

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 23, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

From time to time, we have internal users who are continuously prompted to re-enter their network username and password when accessing any content or data on the SharePoint company intranet.  We use Acitve Directory authentication. Is this a network issue or something with SP? (We're using SP2007)

Allowing internal users access to Sharepoint site externally

Good afternoon.   This may be a simple answer (I hope so actually) but I haven't been able to figure this out. What I need: I have internal users who can access my Sharepoint site easily while logged onto my network, and external users who I have added to our Active Directory system who can access the site using our external URL.  Both work fine. What I am having problems with:  One of my users (internal) is on a different AD (he is on our European network) and he can not access the site either from the VPN (when he is in the US) nor from the external site (it will take him to the logon screen, but since he doesn't have an account on our AD, it won't let him in). I understood from our European IS department that all we had to do was give him both internal and external access to the Sharepoint site, and he would be able to connect from anywhere. So, how do I do that (give him both)?  Do I need to have our IS team turn on MOSS2007 to do this (it is not turned on today). Many thanks, I am still a newb at Sharepoint, but trying to learn quickly. Thanks, Jim

Customized sharepoint portal is not accessible to normal users unless a site admin access the site o


Hello there

I have created a sharepoint portal and customized it. I have created my own master page and there are many webparts implemented. This has been hosted in a MOSS server. When a normal user is trying to access the portal first thing in the morning, he is getting a "You are not authorized to view this page" error. But when a site admin access the site, there is no issue and he is able to access the site. The site admin does nothing in the site and once he has logged in to the site,  the user is able to access the site without any trouble.

I have tried to look into the master page gallery and has given full access to the users for "Style Resource Readers" user group. Even now the user is facing the same issue.

Kindly help in this regards,



How to find out how many users logged onto a sharepoint hosted site?


We have a sharepoint hosted site that is accessible to users externally. 

Sometimes whenever we need to  release some updates, we would like to do it when there is no user browsing the site.

Are there are any tools available? If not, can we write any scripts or code?

Please suggest.

anonymous users vs intranet users in sharepoint 2010 internet facing sites




We have sharepoint 2010 internet facing sites where inside custom master page we have security trimmed control which hides site actions for general users.

Now we have anonymous access enabled. So any body can access this site.

Now even if user is author or from intranet , he can not see site actions as we do not have any sign in link.

How to automatically show site actions to users from intranet and with proper rights and hide siteactions to anonymous users?

Displaying Top 5 Users of a SharePoint 2007 Site on Homepage


I am trying to create dynamic content and reward participation on a SharePoint site.  One of our ideas is to display the Top 5 users and Top 5 Viewed Documents on the homepage. 

One of the ideas I had was to use the site aggregator to display the user statistics but the results are clumsy, at best, and not every user will have full control permissions to view these statistics. 

Is there a relatively easy way to accomplish this without using SharePoint Designer?  Any ideas are appreciated.

Some users are unable to access my intranet site with windows authentication


Hi All

I have an intranet site that i set up to windows authentication. It works fine most of the time but some departments wont be able to access the site and will be asked to enter user name and password.
I checked their Active Directory account and the only difference i could see was that the  organizational unit parameter was different than the rest of the users. But im puzzled on what i can do to fix it and have them accessing the application.

Any ideas?

Is cloud based SharePoint site suitable for Intranet?


Could anyone provide some guidelines for moving to the cloud based SharePoint such as the recent offering of Office365 for enterprise users? Currently we are hosting SharePoint site ourselves and consider to move to cloud based SharePoint, but we heavily depends on custom solutions such as 3rd party solutions, web parts, in-house development using Visual Studio and SharePoint designer.

When moving to cloud based SharePoint, We expect most of these customizations will not be able to be deployed. Does this mean a real cloud based SharePoint for enterprise like us is still far the in future or may never come?
