Domino Web Access URL and Security

Hello,

I installed IBM Domino 9.1 and it is working internally. I have not set it up for Internet email yet, but it can send and receive messages internally. This server is Windows Server 2008 and it is a member of the domain.

I want to be able to access user accounts using Domino Web Access. So, in Internet Explorer, I entered the local URL of http://server.domain.com/mail/user.nsf to open up the user account. When I do this, I am prompted with a Windows Security warning saying, "The server ... at /mail requires a username and password." I entered in the Windows user name and password, but this warning keeps coming up. Eventually, IO receive an Error 401 error saying that I am not authorized to perform this operation.

Why am I getting prompted by Windows for logon credentials, and what credentials should I be using?

What has to be done:
- update the user's Person document in the Notes Address Book with a short name and the Internet password
- apparently, the HTTP task is already running, which is ok
- ascertain that the user has access to the database to be opened
- use the short name and the Internet password set earlier in the name/password dialog box.

Your suggestion helped. I entered the User name as displayed in the Notes Address Book using first name/domain and first last, and it worked. For some reason I am unable to use the short name and the Internet password. Do I have to restart something in Domino for this to work?

It may take a while (several minutes) for the HTTP to see the changes. You could restart the HTTP task.

If the person's name is John Doe/ACME, this is what you could have under Short name/UserID:
john.doe@acme.com
jdoe
johndoe
jd

The short name jd should be unique of course.
