SBS RWW and OWA require two logins

Posted on 2006-07-12
Last Modified: 2010-05-18
I have sbs 2003 up and running well.  RWW works fine, except that once logged into RWW, if the user selects either OWA or the Company Web Site, a second login (windows dialog box) is required.

My account with administrator privileges does not do this.  I log in to RWW and everything works without further logins.

I've run the wizards multiple times, and I created the users based on the User template which is supposed to have access to RWW and OWA.

Did you test from more than one remote location?  If cookies aren't enabled, then this will happen.

Have you installed ?

Are the users in the proper OU?  (\MyBusiness\Users\SBSUsers)?

Have you modified the IIS permissions in any way?

This happens from the same system using two accounts, one has admin the other doesn't.   The admin one works OK the other doesn't.

The KB article didn't help.

The users were added in the OU with the proper templates.

IIS security settings have not been touched manually (always use the wizards).

The KB article didn't help... ?  You mean you reinstalled the patch?
