Lotus notes sql driver keeps asking for password

Discussion in 'Lotus Notes Programming' started by daniel.benjamin, Jul 19, 2006.

  1. I am using the LotusNotesSQL Driver for Windows XP. Though this does
    not occur on my computer, my co-worker is constantly asked for her
    password when she uses an application that communicates with a Lotus
    Notes database. I get prompted for my password if I don't have Lotus
    Notes open, but she gets prompted for her password even when Notes is
    open.

    Has anyone else experienced this. If so, how did you fix it?

  2. Please check the security settings in the "File->Security->User
    security" menu. The dialog that pops up after hitting the menu item has
    a tab called "Basic security". Look at the screen and you will find a
    checkbox labeled "Don't prompt for a password from other Notes-based
    programs (reduces security)".

    I assume that this checkbox is checked on your system, but not on your
    colleagues' system.

    Please be aware that setting this checkbox to true will reduce your
    Notes system security as no other Notes-based application (using any of
    the Notes APIs) will be prompting the user for his/her password.
