Unauthorized Exception !!!

Hi Experts !

In my Domino Console, Whenever any user tries to access any database through a browser a message is displayed.

Unauthorized Exception  &
Unauthenticated Exception

But the user is served with his requests.

How to surpress this message?

What is reason for this message ?

Thanx in advance !

Hi ghassan !

Nice that you are on circuit.
I work for prudential securities in NY city as an Admin !!!  Now my job is to fine tune the performance of the domino server.  First to eradicate this problem.

I am using Version 4.6.3

We have an intranet application that is shortly released.  15th of this month.

I cannot add [Anonymous] to the ACL.

I want only the users in the PAB to access the application.  

Soon U will have lots of points man.
Wait for my load of questions. :)

Hi Arun,

 Check the user rights in form or navigator or the thing you are opening first. If your are opening form, the you may not have access to the form.

What about when you open the any db with your id? Are your id also has the same problem?.

Enjoy your job , i am also put in the same admin line. I have lot of questions to ask you?.

Well I dont have any problems when I access with notes ID.

We have a MAB which points to the Secondary NAB that has the http password in it.  The primary nab does not have any of the users HTTP password.

Will this raise an error like that ?

Hi Arunkumar,

here an extract from Lotus Notes Knowledge Base,
Technote Document #: 169003

"Error 401 - Unauthorized Exception."
This issue has been reported to Lotus Quality Engineering; however, it was determined not to be a software problem.
The Error 401 or Unauthorized Exception message is recorded in the logs anytime that authentication is required.  When it appears in this context, it does not indicate any problems on the Domino server.
Customers can experience an increased number of these errors if the value in the Host Name field in the HTTP Server section on the Server document does not match the host name that the browser uses to access the site.  To avoid these errors, confirm that the fully qualified domain name, not the IP address, is listed in the Host Name field, or confirm that the value in the Host Name field matches the host name the Web clients use to access the site.  If no value is in the Host Name field, the Domino server retrieves the host name from the TCP/IP stack.  Increased 401 errors may be partially a realms issue.
