I am currently trying to analyze my way through a problem at work that some people here may know something about. We have a large local area network, and everybody needs to log in using a payroll number in order to work. We also have a particular application – another internal website – which is used by a subset of these people. They have additional userids and passwords for this, which I will call the application userid/password as apposed to the network userid/password.
The problem is that for about three of the people who want to use the application, their application userid and password will not work. It lets them in, but they can’t do anything. Reports are offered, but when they try to access them they get an error message, someting like “1::Null”.
The interesting thing about this is, if these three people log into any workstation in the system, then the application website cannot be used from that login, and it doesn’t matter whether the person is using the workstation that they normally use, or another one. Conversely, if a second employee whose account is not affected in this way uses their own network login to log into an affected user’s normal workstation, then the application worksite will work from that computer. So the problem seems to move with those three users no matter where they are physically when they log into the LAN.
I spoke to a programmer here who works on the report system and he thinks that the users IE settings move with the users even when they are not on their own workstations.
Is that possible?
