I have migrated a Tom Cat 6 server running on 2003 server to a 2008 server running Tom Cat 7.
Every thing is running great except for when I try to access a restricted folder(password protected) configured with (POST method).
When I try to access a restricted folder the login page is displayed like it should and when I enter the correct user name and password I'm forwarded to the requested page.
The issue is that once I do this with ie8 or ie7 I receive a
HTTP Status 408 - The time allowed for the login process has been exceeded. If you wish to continue you must either click back twice and re-click the link you requested or close and re-open your browser
and on the address bar the /j_security_check is displayed after the requested URL.
I should note that it's definitely not a timeout issue, the setting is default (30) I believe.
I copied the tomcat-users.xml and web.xml exactly as they where on the old machine, in addition when I try to access the same page with Firefox or Chrome or any other browser there is no problem at all
The only clue I was able to find was in the logs, saying
Line 86: INFO: WARNING: Security role name ***** used in an <auth-constraint> without being defined in a <security-role>
Any ideas guys?
Any help would be really appreciated as I have no clue what might be the cause of this .
Thanks & Regards
