Login failed - DMS

Hi everyone,

We are experiencing a minor issue when users login to Qlikview via a browser (IE8). When a user attempts to login they always receive a 'Login Failed' error for a second or so, then the login completes successfully. It's more an annoyance than anything but users are complaining so I thought I best investigate.

We are using a DMS setup if that makes any difference?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated 🙂

Hi Barhopper,

I think you are working in a clustering environment. Do check the clustering environment and ask the users to clear the cache in the internet explorer ---tools option ..




Did you solve this? I have a similar problem, but sometimes the user is not able to open it at all. They don`t get a window asking for credentials and get stuck on Login Failed.

... but most of the time it works normally

I hope someone has solved this before

I am using DMS on QV 10 (still SR1)

It sounds as you have run into bug 35692 - The login.htm found in C:\Program Files\QlikView\Web\login.htm  is showing login failed before continuing on to the Access point, which has been reported for version 9.

I have two machines, same IE, same settings .. clear history, cache etc, one goes immediately to "login failed" with no login dialog, the other works just fine. Only difference I see using fiddler2 is some cookie information in the handshaking

Failure machine

     Cookie: Login=True; PreferedClient=Plugin; qlikmachineid=195d6d90-5e4c-4bf9-9d9f-98f694e386f8

Successful machine

     Cookie: Login=True;
