Could not automatically login Sametime

Posted on 2009-07-08
Last Modified: 2013-12-18

I'm using Sametime plugin in my Lotus Notes 8.0.2. I try to make my Sametime to login automatically when I login my Lotus Notes. I have ticked the 'Remember Password' and 'Automatically Login'. However, if I closed my Lotus Notes, the next time I go in back, it will not automatically login. I have to manually login myself, and I found that the password field is empty, then I will have to type in my password again.

How to make it login automatically?

I tried to tick the 'Use Domino Single Sign On', I have type in my passwords & tick the 'Remember password', I have also tick the 'Automatically Log in'. Then I close my lotus notes 8.02 and log in again.

After login in my Lotus notes, it prompt out for my Sametime password is missing (Strange, I've already put in to remember my password). So I have to key in my password to log in again.

Then I close my lotus notes and login again to test. This time it didn't automatically login. So I go to Preferences | Sametime..... I saw that my password is empty, and the 'Use Domino Single Sign On' is also untick. Why the settings is gone?

Well it could be that your company has a policy preventing Single Sign on for Sametime.

You need to talk with your  IT or Lotus Admin.

I hope this helps !
