IIS remembering login

Hi Experts,

Previously I was struggling with an annoying login pop up issue - that is solved but ..

For a few test users, I logged them in under the server admin account. Now, with windows integrations authentication apparently working "properly", all users are being correctly identified EXCEPT the testers who logged in as admin. They are being remembered under the admin password, even when they remote in to the office (on a  different IP address).

Have tried getting users to wipe all temporary files in IE, and recycling the applicaiton on the server, but still have this issue.

Any ideas on how I can flush this from the server memory??

Cheers, Split_Pin

Hi DarinTCH

Thanks for your suggestion - some more info:

- we are running IE7 in the organisation

- in Tools-Internet Options we tried deleting everything in IE - using General - Browsing History - Delete - Delete ALL. We also tried individually deleting the sub categroeis (Delete Files, Delete Cookies, Delete History, Delete Forms, Delete Passwords).

Could it be we need to go deeper into IE7 and clear out some temp files somewhere? I am biased towards thinking this is an issue on the server (but only because my earlier issue was on the server yet majority of google searches I did suggested IE was to blame)

More than happy to try out any other suggestions you can shoot over!!

are you sure that while troubleshooting you have set some options in the ie?

can these try logging from other machines?

Hi Simonlimon

Definitely let's assume I could have mucked ANYTHING up while troubleshooting - I will take your advice and get these guys to try logging in from another PC on Monday and update this thread with the result.

(So if the error goes away its specific to IE I take it, if it persists, its on the server)

Thank you

Hi Folks
I got one of my testers to log in on a different machine he has never used before, and the site still recognises him as Server/Admin.

So this would seem to rule out IE issues - is there somewhere in IIS I can hit flush so users have to re-authenticate (I might add, it has been over a week since he entered the admin password, so I would have thought any short term sessions would have expired... then again if I knew what I was talking about I wouldn't be here begging cap in hand now would I :-)

Can you check this users privileges on the server? Does he have some extensive group membership? Something that was added during troubleshooting?

In spite of different hardware doing the same thing, this solution dredged up from an other site worked in my case.


Start -> Run (or WinKey+R) and type control keymgr.dll

I have never heard of this before.

Thank you for trying! Issue is resolved.
