Active Directory user: Login failure. User name and/or password incorrect.

 

Overview

When attempting to log into the Orion Web Console, an Active Directory (AD) user enters the correct username and password but gets the following message:

Login failure. User name and/or password incorrect. 

An entry similar to the following is in the OrionWeb.log, located at C:\ProgramData\Solarwinds\Logs\Orion\OrionWeb.log on your Orion server:

2017-07-17 14:41:19,628 [64] (348) WARN  SolarWinds.Orion.Web.OrionMixedModeAuth - (null)  System.Security.Authentication.AuthenticationException: Cannot logon 'username@domain' via Interactive/Default ---> System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException: Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070569)

Environment 

 

Cause 

This is caused by a permissions issue.

 

Resolution

There are three ways to fix this error:

 

  • Enable Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP).

    1. Log in to the Web Console using a local Orion account (non-domain account).
    2. Click Settings > All Settings > User Accounts > Advanced AD Settings.
    3. Switch Authenticate Active Directory Users via LDAP to ON.
    4. Fill in the appropriate LDAP server information and Save.

 

  • If you cannot implement or prefer not to implement either of the above solutions, perform the following steps to enable the logon fallback in the Orion database, depending on which version of the Orion Platform you have:

+ If you have Orion Platform version 2014.2.1 or earlier

These steps are for version 2014.2.1 or earlier.

  1. Create a backup of your databases:

    • Orion: SolarwindsOrionDatabase

    • NCM: ConfigMgmt

  2. Log in to your Orion server as an administrator.

  3. Go to Start > Solarwinds Orion > Advanced Features > Database Manager.

  4. Click Add Server and provide the required details.

  5. Log in using your SQL Orion account.

  6. Right-click the SolarWinds Orion database.

  7. Click New Query.

  8. Copy and paste the following:

IF NOT EXISTS (SELECT [SettingName] FROM [dbo].[WebSettings] WHERE [SettingName]='LogonFallback')
BEGIN INSERT INTO [dbo].[WebSettings] ([SettingName],[SettingValue]) VALUES ('LogonFallback','True') END 
ELSE BEGIN UPDATE [dbo].[WebSettings] SET [SettingValue]='True' WHERE [SettingName] = 'LogonFallback' END
  1. Click Execute Query.

  2. Restart your SolarWinds website in Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.

  3. Log in to the Web Console using your AD account.

The DB manager may indicate that 0 rows are affected. This can be ignored.

 

+ If you have Orion Platform version 2015.1 to 2017.1

These steps are for version 2015.1 to 2017.1.

  1. Create a backup of your databases:

    • Orion: SolarwindsOrionDatabase

    • NCM: ConfigMgmt

  2. Log in to your Orion server as an administrator.

  3. Go to Start > Solarwinds Orion > Advanced Features > Database Manager.

  4. Click Add Server and provide the required details.

  5. Log in using your SQL Orion account.

  6. Right-click the SolarWinds Orion database.

  7. Click New Query.

BEGIN INSERT INTO [dbo].[WebSettings] ([SettingName],[SettingValue]) VALUES ('LogonFallback','False') END 
ELSE BEGIN UPDATE [dbo].[WebSettings] SET [SettingValue]='False' WHERE [SettingName] = 'LogonFallback' END
  1. Click Execute Query.

  2. Restart your SolarWinds website in Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.

  3. Log in to the Web Console using your AD account.
