server needs rebooting after programmatic additi on of new user

  Asked By: Vasudev    Date: Oct 02    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 841

Whilst we can happily add users from the NT domain into Sharepoint, we find
that these new users are not recognised by Sharepoint when we try to login
as them. This is despite the users appearing in the Sharepoint security

It only seemed to work when we reboot sharepoint.

This is a common bug. Just restart the IIS admin service and its decencies,
should be four, and it will work  great.

It still doesn't work  after IIS restart/services restart. This is really
crap as our app. programmatically adds users  - surely we can't restart the
server or indeed services each time we add  a new user  to SP?

I was told that this bug should have been solved in SP1.
Haven't tried it yet though......

Sorry, have you installed the service pack?

hello, yes i have installed the service pack and it still will not recognise
new users.

We can programmatically scan & output sharepoint users  - and can provide an
error message when users are not found. So, for, example, when sp is called
from our website, the username is looked for in sp. when found, access is
granted to the next web page that passes the user's details into sp. What we
find is that if a new user  is added to SP, the code scanning works and sees
that the user is indeed within the sharepoint  system. However, sp itself
fails at the portal. We get a prompt for username and password. when we
enter the details, sp rejects them and eventually returns access denied. if
we start and stop sp services, the user is accepted. it is really
dissapointing and means that users may well have to be batch added to the
system by an administrator (unless there is a way to programmatically start
and stop sp services(!)). removing people from sp works fine, and we have
found that once the user is accepted into sp, removing them and adding them
again is trouble-free.

any ideas???
