avoid windows login

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I have created an internal website and when I run it on the server it asks for a windows login which I would wish to avoid.

Does anybody have any ideas on how this could be done?

Forms based users being prompted for windows authentication login for My Sites photos in user lists

Here's an issue I didn't see coming for our forms based authentication users. 

We have a web application extended to an external url to handle forms based authentication for users outside of our domain. Our setup looks like this...

Internal Users/Windows Authentication - moss.domain.com
External Users/Forms Based - mossext.domain.com
My Site for Internal Users - mysites.domain.com

When our forms based users are accessing user lists, or discussion pages that display user pictures, they are getting a windows authentication login for our internal users (mysites.domain.com) who have populated their my site with personal photo.

How do we fix this?

Could anyone pleas help me out with this one?

Login to SQL, using Windows 7, SQL Server Error 18452, "Login failed. The login is from an untrusted

I have a File/Sharing Server which is Server 2008 SP2 and SQL Server 2008 is installed on it. My system which is on the same workgroup, was running Windows 2003 Server, which I have saved Server 2008 login credential on it and used that credential to login to SQL Server on Server 2008 system in Windows Authentication mode using SQL management studio. Recently I installed Windows 7 on that system, and I have also saved that Server 2008 credential in Windows 7 Credential Manager. The problem is here when I want to login in Windows Authentication mode using SQL management studio like past, and I will get below Error: Cannot connect to [SERVER] Login failed. The login is from an untrusted domain and cannot be used with Windows authentication. (.Net SqlClient Data Provider) Error Number: 18452 Severity: 14 State: 1 Line Number: 65536 I tried that registry solution (DisableLoopbackCheck=0x01 this thread), but no luck with that. I have checked the outgoing packets when I click on connect, and I found out that SQL management studio tried to send my local windows credential instead of Server 2008 saved credential. I don't want to login in SQL Mode, and also I don't want to convert my server to Domain controller. Is there any other solution with this issue? Regards

Multiple Windows Authentication options on login after Web App restore

Hi I have a question regarding SharePoint Foundation 2010 and backup / restore jobs... I'm doing nightly farm backups using PowerShell: Add-PsSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell Set-location $home Backup-SPFarm -Directory \\same-server\***** -BackupMethod Differential This morning I decided to try and restore a single web application, just to make sure it works. In Central Administration I selected the latest farm backup and then selected the node for the Web Application and choose restore (using option: Same configuration) because it's the same server. Restore process went fine, no failure messages, and I can see that it has restored the content I deleted for testing. BUT when I enter the site. I'm presented with a Login page (that you would see if you have also configured Forms Authentication for the same zone, which I have not) and the drop down box show two options: "Windows Authentication" and "Windows Authentication". Both let me use windows credentials to login so basically the login page is pointless and it wasn't there before. I should note: The Web Application was and is configured to use Claims Based Authentication and for Windows Authentication: Kerberos. Nothing for forms. Default sign in page. And I was never presented with this redundant login page before the restore. Anyone knows why this could be happening and how to solve it?? Than

Login View - How to avoid unnecessary queries to db to GetRolesForUser

Hi,I have built an asp.net web site with .net framework 3.5 and I am trying to avoid sending unncessary queries to my database in order not to have high server load. I have a login view in my master pages and it contains templates for anonymous users and members.To lighten my server load, I am using Sql Data Profiler and Database Tuning Advisor. I noticed that every page load triggers a stored procedure to get user role using dbo.aspnet_UsersInRoles_GetRolesForUser stored procedure.My question is that if it is necessary to check for every page load or I can store it somewhere and check later.is it Login View or Login Control sending queries ?is it about access rules to member's pages ?oris it because I used the login controls in my master page ?any suggestions and comments will help me.Thanks

Windows Auth - still showing login prompt in IE...

Hi, I'm trying to setup my IIS 7.0 MVC2 site but having problems. I want to use Integrated Security so that the app can obtain the user's credentials. We can then do a look-up of some AD groups to determine what they can do from that point onwards. The problem is - Every time we browse to the application, instead of navigating to our main page immediately, we get a login prompt provided by IE. I've read that we need to make sure that in the browser's Tools->Options->Advanced-> (Securiy-> ENable Windows Intagrated Security) must be checked - which it is on ALL 3 machines where I try this. The machines AND the server are all in the same domain. My config file states <authentication mode="Windows" /> and I've tried every combination for <identity...> and <authorization...> but to no avail. I can only get the "login" prompt to go away if I enable Anonymous Authentication - but then I can't detect the windows user or their group membership. What is causing the perpetual display of the login prompt - Its driving me mad ! Help...

SQL Server Login - Windows Groups

We are trying to standardise access to SQL Server in our oraganisation.

We are installing SQL Server Management Studio locally for all our developers and DBA's.

The DBA login in sql server has been given the 'sysadmin' role. The DBA domain account has been made a member of the following Windows Groups,

- Remote Desktop Users
- Users

Our developers have been given the appropriate database role. Their domain admin account has been made a member of the following Windows Groups,

- Users

Can you advise whether this is a correct setup, if not can you suggest an alternative ?
Do we need to put Developers in the 'Users' group ?

Anoying Windows login popup window


HI all,

I have an application that uses Active Directory to validate users as well as populate a couple doopdown list, the application is connected to sql database on a seperate server.


When I first published the application I got an error from Active Directory I eventually found out that I had to embed a username and password within the code for active directory to work.  When i sorted out this problem I got one with my SQL and again used a username and password to allow connection to the database.


My new problem is when a user other than me logs in the windows popup windwo appairs requiring user name and password to login. The program is writen for windows authontetation but form where I check the person loged onto the computer and check username against active directory. After the person clicks the "OK" button a couple time they then have to click the close to exit the screen.

the user can look at a page but if they try any kind of processing they are required to log in again and this time they are not verified. 


I would like to get rid of the popup box and let the validation gor though like it dose in my location.


My IIS permision is set to windows authontecATION.
