ISA 2004 Proxy Integrated Authentication fails

I have an ISA 2004 Standard Server (on Win2k3 SP2) used as proxy in a Windows 2003 Active Directory. Client is Win XP SP2, IE7

Today I suddenly had a problem with one single user, and it just started during the day. I am not aware of any changes on his machine or the proxy server. The user's password was reset by the helpdesk this morning. The user is in a remote site.

When he tries to open a web page thru the proxy, he gets a popup box asking for his credentials. In the proxy log I can see that it's not authenticating correctly, we only get "anonymous" as username. I confirmed that his password is correct. His client was rebooted. He has current Kerberos tickets (krbtgt, Service Tickets for the proxy server). Entering the correct username does not help.

Now when he tries to logon or enters his password, I get a 529 Logon Failure Audit in the event log in the proxy, however it looks like that (see code window). So instead of his using user name I get this strange string.

When we enter a different username and password in the popup box, it authenticates just fine, and we get to the Internet. This made me think it's only a problem when using Kerberos, so I disabled "Integrated Windows Authentication" in his Internet Explorer, restarted it, and now it works just fine.

Anybody seen this before?

My guess is with " The user's password was reset by the helpdesk"   That the workstation the user is logging into still has the old password.    Is the workstation in a Workgroup or part of the domain.    When the user attempt to hit ISA it passing the old password.    The password is not synced

That's what I thought, too. But the user is in the domain, we rebooted his machine and logged in with his new password. I guess I will just try again next week to see if it was somehow related to old cached credentials or something, but it doesn't make a lot of sense.

I would check to ensure no saved password are on the XP box for this user:

http://www.lockergnome.com/windows/2005/11/07/remove-saved-passwords-in-xp-2/

Then reset the password again one last time...still a no go are they using the ISA 2004 proxy client?

If so I would uninstall and reinstall.

There were no local user names or passwords stored. He does use the proxy client, however we disabled it for the test and had the same problem.

We had some other major issues this morning so I couldn't look back into this yet. Thanks for your input so far.

Odd...I would still uninstall and reinstall the client.

We uninstalled and reinstalled the proxy client - no difference :(

I had one the administrators on site login with her account on this machine. It works fine for her. So it's something related to his account/profile. As of now I just left integrated authentication disabled since I am not aware of any application he uses that actually needs this, however this is really strange.

And if that failed was going to be my next suggestion to rebuild the profile.

Yes, that's our plan in case he ever needs this. As of now we are not rebuilding it, since he has a lot of custom stuff and it's always a pain to redo those profiles. Anyway, thanks for your input.

We never really resolved this, but I think the steps above were all valid troubleshooting steps so I gave the points here.

High user turnover can cause old/redundant user data to consume valuable space. UserResourceCleanup was developed to address this by automatically deleting user folders when the user account is deleted.
