Hi, I've noticed for the last few days every time I open up the site I have to log in (I use my ASP.NET user name). Previously, the site would remember my session and only occasionally (usually if I hadn't been in for a few days) ask me to reauthenticate,
but now it's asking me every day and there isn't a "remember my credentials" option. Is this intentional, or has a bug been introduced, recently?
Cheers - MH

It was working fine at my end, try to clear all temporary files and cookies, reset the IE settings.
Or, wait for help from Admin.

No changes have been deployed to the site recently, and I can't repro this problem. As Sutish suggested, you might trying clearing out your browser's cache, etc, then closing and reopening the browser.

I tried this (at the time I couldn't shut down my browser as I was in the middle of something) and yesterday morning it seemed to work ok, but when I went in this morning it had, once again, forgotten my login token and I had to re-enter my credentials.
Any more ideas, please?

Have you by any chance set your browser to delete browsing history when you exit?

Nope, checked and it isn't set, plus I haven't changed any browser settings in months. For what domains are cookies set (I'm wondering if this has been changed)

Nothing has been changed on this end regarding login and cookies, and I have seen no other reports of this issue. The cookie is set on .asp.net

I'll close this down, it seems to be ok now. Nothing had changed at our end (and it's locked down via GPOs) so it must have either been an issue with the site, or caused by an MS Windows update that was rolled out, because that's the only thing that has
changed on my system.
