Cloud Server - Windows Security login timeout
« on: September 20, 2017, 12:23:27 am »
Hello all,
we tested Cloud Server with MODEL_AUTHENTICATION against a DBMS repository. It works more or less as expected, however very unpleasant is the Windows Security login dialog timeout. It is accessible only a few seconds. If I don’t enter the username and password in time, the login dialog is overlaid by Windows „Server busy“ modal window. Then I can only kill EA task in Task Manager and start again.
Does anybody have similar experience? Is there any way how to resolve this, for example to set a timeout for the Windows Security login dialog?
Regards
Jiri

This is not an answer. But I have had problems with authentication as well. For me the password inside the repository is the password used in the Cloud login NOT the Active Directory password (?). I think Sparx need to treat this as a defect/bug.

Jiri,

I believe that problem should be saved by updating to a more recent EA version. A change in the implementation of that prompt within Windows caused the error.
