Users cannot login - after MFA, they are returned to the login screen

    Applies to:
  • Legacy SecureAuth IdP
Deployment model:
  • On Premises
  • SecureAuth IdP Version affected: All

    Description: Users cannot login - after MFA, they are returned to the login screen and the process starts again. Sometimes Users can login, especially if they move through the login process very quickly.

    Cause: Filesync 4.x needs the Service running on the Primary and Secondary servers. If not, the Manifest file gets out of date and this causes the web.config to appear to be newer on the secondary servers. This causes filesync to keep copying the web.config from the primary to secondary every minute.
    The end result is anyone who is attempting to login when the web.config is copied again, will have their session terminated and the login process will start again.


    If using 4.x 
    1. Login to the Primary Server.
    2. Open Services.msc
    3. Set the SecureAuth Filesync Service to Automatic start type
    4. Start the SecureAuth Filesync Service.
    5. Make sure the Manifest file now updates
