LIM Login Failure

Hi all,

I have this issue with LIM.

I Installed it & configured a user correctly according to the procedure of WI Install Guide.

But when I try to log in to the admin console, the console display error something like this :

Is this some misconfig on the LIM or on the WebServer IIS?

kindly help me on this.

Re: LIM Login Failure

Check the LIM troubleshooting section of the WebInspect installation guide here. Basically you need to ensure that the application pool has access to the machine keys folder.

It seems also that you're also hitting an issue - with styles being missing - that (if you're using the LIM version that comes with WebInspect 16.10) is caused by the fact that IIS versions greater than 7.5 already contain a MIME Type mapping for .woff files at the application host level, resulting in a conflict between that and the one contained within LIM's web.config:


      <mimeMap fileExtension=".woff" mimeType="application/x-font-woff" />


The resolution is to either remove the MIME type mapping from the application host or from the LIM web.config - or if you use a later version of LIM (such as the version that comes packaged with 16.20) the issue should resolve itself.
