SharePoint Web Services work for 10 hours then start throwing 401 Ac

  Date: May 29    Category: Sharepoint 2010    Views: 922

We've just finished our SharePoint 2007 > SharePoint 2010 conversion and we are
having a persistent problem with the web services that we depend on for
information for some of our other sites.

We are using the site collection administrator to access our web services. The
web services are being accessed from a AAM that is configured for Windows Auth.
Everything works great for 8 - 10 hours and then the we start getting 401
(Access Denied) errors on the account. If we IISRESET, then they start working
again.

Here is a sample from our logs of what is happening:

2011-09-23 04:55:46 10.45.25.237 POST /_vti_bin/lists.asmx - 12345
0#.w|<domain>\<account> 10.45.25.245

Mozilla/4.0+(compatible;+MSIE+6.0;+MS+Web+Services+Client+Protocol+4.0.30319.237\
) 200 0 0 157

Then all of the sudden:

2011-09-23 05:56:24 10.45.25.237 POST /contacts/_vti_bin/lists.asmx - 12345 -
10.45.25.245

2011-09-23 05:56:24 10.45.25.237 POST /contacts/_vti_bin/lists.asmx - 12345 -
10.45.25.245
Mozilla/4.0+(compatible;+MSIE+6.0;+MS+Web+Services+Client+Protocol+4.0.30319.237\
) 401 1 2148074254 4
2011-09-23 05:56:24 10.45.25.237 POST /_vti_bin/lists.asmx - 12345
0#.w|<domain>\<account> 10.45.25.245
Mozilla/4.0+(compatible;+MSIE+6.0;+MS+Web+Services+Client+Protocol+4.0.30319.237\
) 401 0 0 162

It appears that it will keep doing 401 for a hour or two then it will start
returning 200's again.

A couple of things about this that strike me odd are that there are always 2
requests that are made that get a 401, then a request is made with the
0#.w|<domain>\<account>, and that 200's. I've tried to figure out why this
happens but to no avail.

Has anyone else seen this kind of behavior? We have been struggling with this
issue for 3 weeks now and need to resolve it.
