SP Portal - Asking for password all the time

  Asked By: Haresh    Date: Dec 18    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1681

My SharePoint portal has started to ask for password all the time. Every
attempt to do something on the page, as a user, is being prompt with the
password window. Sometime I need to enter the password several times.

Looked at the IIS and I can see the Error sign on the web site
Looked at the event log and the only error that I can see is regarding
"?:" directory, which Microsoft says to ignore that error.

What should I look into?

Not sure exactly why, but I would start by restarting the services. If
that does not work, then if you can reboot the server.

I did look at the IIS and saw a red error  sign on the sharepoint  web
site directory.
Then I restarted the IIS -> did not work.
Then I restarted the machine -> did not work.

I think all my troubles started  after I tried to install Content Server
on the same machine. I think it damaged the BackOfficeStorage
environment and that is why the IIS has issues.

If any one knows something I would love to hear/read it.

I have same problem (once a month) and I just restart all SPPS related
services. I start to investigate and I found some kind of problem when I want to
view the properties of MExchange Information store error:
Configuration Manager: The specified device instance handle does not correspond
to a present device. Did you got it?
Is your server a DC? (how your users authenticate?) Is the only user  that can
login local admin?
