Hi All

I have configured weblogic 8.1 with Apache as the plugin and set up the basic authentication for Apache with the users information stored in htpasswd file. I had to duplicate the same user with the same password under the default realm of weblogic inorder to let the user authenitcate.

I didn't run into this issue on Windows but on Solaris this seems to happen. I would be really greatful if anyone provides me with the links/explanation or documentation as to why is there this kind of behavior.

Thanks
SC

Hi

There is no exception as such. The servlet basically is set up for Basic authentication at Apache level in httpd.conf file pointing to the password file. The application does prompt with the login window but once you enter the userid and password configured another login window comes up with the "Weblogic" realm prompt. Only when you duplicate users in the default realm of weblogic then this behaviour stops.

This was not the case with earlier versions of Weblogic. If anyone has run into this problem please do reply.

Thanks
SC
