problem with Domcfg.nsf

hi,

i am facing a very typical prob. with the domcfg.nsf file which i have configured for authentication. i have created a domcfg.nsf file from the domcfg.ntf and customised the $$UserLoginForm. I have enabled the session etc. now when this page is opened for authentication sometimes it open the customized page and sometimes the default page (the yellow one). i have implemented this in lot of places where its working fine...but only in this case its giving me trouble. the only diff. is its on AIX, which i dont feel should be the reason. Something interesting i have noticed is that if i open the $$UserLoginForm in the designer and just close it, it works again.

thanks in adv.

Maybe this is a possible solution:

Quote from above document : "I had compacted the domcfg.nsf DB - it was not being listed as ODS 41/R5 format in the admin pane. Then voila it worked. Don't ask me why, since I created the DB with the proper 5.0x series client on a 5.0x server."

Did you create a Login Form Mapping document in domcfg.nsf and specify the new login form to be used or did you just modify the default login form?

I implemented a custom form by creating a new login form (based on the $$LoginUserForm) and then adding the Login Form Mapping document to refer to this new document.

In the Login Form Mapping document I specified the following values:
Server type : Server wide setting
Comment : Use my own custom login form for authentication.
Target Database file name: domcfg.nsf
Target Form name : MyLoginUserForm

'MyLoginUserForm' is the name of the form I created in domcfg.nsf

My server is running on NT4 service pack 6, so I can't tell if this is due to AIX platform. But with the form setup like this I have had no problems so far.

Regards,
JM

Oh yeah forgot to mention that you need to check the checkmark next to 'Prohibit design refresh or replace to modify' in the form properties design tab.

Another possible fix:

This is a fix in 5.0.11 (yet to be released) for a crash of the custom login form, don't think this is your problem, but you never know...

No comment has been added to this question in more than 682 days, so it is now classified as abandoned..
I will leave the following recommendation for this question in the Cleanup topic area:

Any objections should be posted here in the next  4  days. After that time, the question will be closed.

Thanks,

Again a B? You're really screwing up my statistics, here :(

Jean Marie GeeraertsApplication EngineerCommented:
For this one, I don't mind the B so much as there's no 100% certainty that the problem was solved, since the user didn't provide any feedback.

However, I feel that considering there's no money gained by the experts for the points they get from answering questions it's better to give an A for abandoned questions.

The reason why I have become less active at EE is that a lot of the new users tend to automatically give you a B, even if you give them a perfect step by step solution or don't grade the question at all and you get stuck again with a B, because it's automatically assumed that an abonded question didn't get a perfect answer.

My point being here is, that the experts that suggest to accept an answer feel that this answer is indeed the solution to the question and therefore the expert deserves credit for the solution provided.

If the question wasn't answered a recommendation is made to either delete/refund or delete the question, so it's my opinion that it's best to give an A. I'm guessing less people will be offended by a surprise A than a surprise B. -- Not that I'm offended, but I like to get credit for the free work I do here ;-)

Kind regards,
JM

Maybe the cleanup volunteers can also give a recommenation as to the grade to be given.
It doesn however feel like we're putting the strain of the effort towards the 'good guys' that put a lot of effort in zifting through abandoned questions, where we should try to find a way to encourage the end users to grade their questions.
