This is using MS Sharepoint server 2013. This server has been setup and configured with some settings a couple of months. However, when the user logon, he or she has to key in passwords several times before accessing. What could be went wrong with it, and how to solve the problem?

I assume user is using web browser to access SharePoint content.
Are users using different browser than Internet Explorer? Could user try with IE if the behaviour is the same?

Seems like your password has been changed recently and it was saved in credential manager.
Try clearing the data from credential manager.


If the above doesnt work try below.

Web.config file

Location -> C:\inetpub\wwwroot\80 or 90

Try Adding below entries there.

<add verb="OPTIONS" allowed="false" />
<add verb="PROPFIND" allowed="false" />

Open in new window


Enjoy !Pawan

Hi Pawan,

The exact location for web.config file is, C:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\web server extensions\15\templates\layouts

However, after adding in the 2 lines as suggested, I can't browse the sharepoint home page.

Please see attached web.config file
web.config

Hi,

No no, Dont change that config file, that is for something else.

Let me check some other option, you are sure that you dont have config file @ C:\inetpub\wwwroot. Right ?

Don't touch the web config file for this. If the user can log in once, even if they have to try multiple times, that indicators that the web config file is fine. Modifying that file can lead you down a long path to destruction of your SharePoint farm.

It is likely user issues, or possibly a sporadic connection to the AD controller or possibly network issues. Troubleshoot in those directions and you will find the issue.

I added the sharepoint url into the IE's Intranet, and also in Internet options, tick "remember the current user and password".

Tested few days, and looks like the prompting gone.
