User unable to access subsite

  Asked By: Julianne    Date: Apr 02    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1322

I have a user in Asia who can access *http://SERVER/sites/TopLevel* with no
issues, but when he tries to access *http://SERVER/sites/TopLevel/Subsite*,
he get prompted for a login. He enters his creds, but cannot access. I use
SharePoint-specific Active DIrectory groups, and his group is permissioned
on both sites.

Any idea why he would be getting this error?

We had something similar happen. We had to add the URL to the
Trusted Sites location in IE. That stopped the logons from happening.

I have my users add *http://SERVER/* to their Trsuted Sites off the bat.
That is what was throwing me for a loop. I also have them add a couple of
different wildcards. I also had the user  try adding the IP address. Could
this be something with his local network? I have posted that I am currently
dealing with an Active Directory migration, this guy's profile is in the
same domain as the farm.

If you are dealing with an AD migration you should also check out the STSADM
MigrateUser command. When users are moved in an AD environment a new SID is
generated for them and the old SID is maintained as a History SID. SharePoint
only reads the main SID, not the History SID. So depending on when a user  was
added to SharePoint on the two sites  it may not see them as the same user. Take
a look at the following:
