Delayed logins: Change Password feature in ISA 2006 FBA

by Shijaz Abdulla on 13.08.2007 at 08:13

If you have published Outlook Web Access (OWA) using ISA Server 2006 Forms-based authentication (FBA) and decided to use the new Password Management features on ISA Server 2006 FBA instead of the conventional OWA change password feature, you need to read this.

When you have install Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2 or the Scalable Networking Pack on the computer running ISA Server 2006, you will probably face issues when you enabled ISA Server 2006 Password management features. Users may report that the login process takes a long time (15 seconds or more) when you turn on the password management feature, even if they choose not to change their password while logging on.

I have written an article for a workaround to this, the KB article is now available on the Microsoft Knowledge Base (KB555958) and also on my website.

“How to export members of an Exchange distribution group to a text file”

My first contribution to the Microsoft Knowledge Base. An article with my name on it. I look at it with the same ecstacy that an eight year old child would have had when he sees his own name in print.
