Ok, now that I think I am past the 2003 security issues, I now have an issue
that is odd and stopping me in my tracks. I see the logon screen and am
able to login to the system with my user id/password (click the remember id
etc, for future logins). The problem is no matter what link I click I am
redirected back to the login screen...it is like the session information for
being logged in is not set. I did double check the web app settings and
enable session state is checked with a timeout of 20 minutes (which I bumped
to 120 for good measure).

Anyway, any ideas on this one?!? Help!

Thx,

Rob

Hi Rob,

It's definitely a problem with Session State. If you sneak a peek at the
bug.aspx page, you'll notice that Aardvark checks the userid stored in the
session object to determine if you're logged on. If it's not finding that,
it checks for a cookie. Failing that, you're asked to log on.

Does it still happen if you set Aardvark to log you on automatically?

Regards,

Brian Donahue

Hi Brian,

Well, I put in several response.write statements to ensure the code path is
executing the session set logic (which it is), but something odd is that I
can see (with the response.writes) the cookie logic being executed but no
cookies are created (my browser does allow cookies, etc.). I output the
various session variables being set and they all look good. Yet, when I
click any link I am immediately redirected to the logon page...very odd. I
have no idea why session state seems to be getting 'lost' after the initial
post back login (BTW, I have profiled SQL and I do the the selects hitting
the database for the login requests...kinda knew it would since I am logging
in ok as I see my name in the welcome message "Welcome to Aardvark, Rob").

Any other ideas? I am to the point that I think Aardvark is not really
supportable on the 2003 platform and will be installing a old 2000 box just
for Aardvark (it is a crtical app for our company). Any help is greatly
appriciated.

Thx,

Rob

Ok, called MS and got the scoop. Don't put an underscore "_" in your
machine name. IE won't allow cookies to be written (security risk).

http://support.microsoft.com/?id=316112

Anyway, it is up and running (now dealing with e-mail).

Thx and hope my posts help others,

Rob
