Overview

With Windows Integration enabled in the Patch Manager Web Console and the web browser, users unable to log in with Web Console. The following error message is shown in C:\ProgramData\Solarwinds\Logs\Orion\OrionWeb.log reporting, where MyDomain\MyUserAccount is the user account of the browser.

 

[22] ERROR SolarWinds.Orion.Web.DAL.AccountProfileDAL - Attempted to retreive properties for nonexistent user MyDomain\MyUserAccount.
[22] ERROR Orion_Controls_PageHeader - System.Configuration.SettingsPropertyNotFoundException: The settings property 'AccountType' was not found.
   at System.Configuration.SettingsBase.GetPropertyValueByName(String propertyName)
   at System.Configuration.SettingsBase.get_Item(String propertyName)
   at System.Web.Profile.ProfileBase.GetInternal(String propertyName)
   at System.Web.Profile.ProfileBase.get_Item(String propertyName)
   at ProfileCommon.get_AccountType()
   at Orion_Controls_PageHeader.get_UsernameLabel()
[22] ERROR SolarWinds.Orion.Web.DAL.AccountProfileDAL - Attempted to retreive properties for nonexistent user MyDomain\MyUserAccount.

 

Environment

Patch Manger Web Console versions earlier than 2.1

Cause 

The browser or IIS Windows account integration settings are forcing the processing of the logged-in users AD credentials instead of the submitted user credentials. The logged-in user may not be a user in Orion and as such not permitted to log in.

Resolution

  1. Disable browser Integrated Windows Authentication:
    1. In IE, go to Tools > Internet Options.
    2. In Advanced tab, deselect the option Enable Integrated Windows Authentication.
      Note: If this is set by Group Policy changing in the browser directly may have no effect.
  2. If the issue persists, attempt to log in on another browser with Integrated Windows Authentication disabled.
  3. Go to Start > All Programs > SolarWinds Orion > Configuration and Auto-Discovery > Configuration Wizard.
  4. Disable the option "Yes - Enable automatic login using Windows Authentication" in the Orion Configuration Wizard.
