Users Are Continually Challenged For Authentication When Using Windows 7 And WebDAV (Doc ID 1328122.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 02, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Content - Version to [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Windows 7 and Windows Vista clients


On : version, Content Server

Using WebDav, if the authenticated user logs out, and then tries to log back in, they are continually challenged for authentication. 
Valid credentials are not accepted.
The only way to work around is to delete the webdav folder and recreate.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. From a Windows 7 machine, add a Network Place to access the Content Server via WebDAV.
2. Log out and back in, or restart.
