ITunes keep asking for credentials

Hi all, I have an IronPort S170, with latest version and updates.
We have a lot of users using itunes to sync Apple devices, the problem is that it allways asks for user & password, several times (really annoying). Can anybody help me solving this issue?
thanks a lot
Best regards.                  

HI Gonzalo,
I assume you're using NTLM SSO. Pending on you configuration this auth popup is created due inability to authenticate via NTLM for the specific request. It seems there are currently known problems with iTunes and NTLM auth. I found records on apple support communitate reporting version 1.6 of iTunes no longer being able to proper authenticate via NTLM. As workaround you could use e.g. IP surrogates which will keep the users IP authenticated once the first request has been authenticated, e.g. via Internet Explorer. By this iTunes will not require to authenticate again. Also your Domain Controller will be happy to have less auth request.

  • Why does iTunes keep asking for my password when I want to listen to my music on my iPhone?

    When I want to listen to music on my iPhone, iTunes keeps asking for my password.  I am not purchasing anything.  It started today.  Why is that?

    I've been having the same problem on my iPad and iPhone. I talked to Apple customer service this morning. They had me do the following on both devices in the Settings:
    * Sign out of iTunes & App Store
    * Sign out of FaceTime
    * Sign out of Game Center
    * Delete iCloud account
    They also had me restore my iPad due to some glitchy behavior in the Music app.
    Things seemed to me fixed for a few hours until I went into the iTunes Store app on my iPad and added a movie to my Wish List. When I went back to the Music app, the dreaded "Sign In to iTunes Store" popup started showing up again on both devices. Suspicious!
    So, I cleared out my Wish List in both the iTunes Store and App Store. I've been poking at the Music app on both my iPhone and iPad since then I haven't seen that popup once since then. I'm not going to declare victory yet since it's only been an hour or two, but I thought that this was worth mentioning.

    i have followed the suggested methods of restoring my iphone by placing it into recovory mode, however itunes keeps asking for a response from my iphone except it is disabled and thus the restoration willnot continue

    There's a whole lot to read in your post, and frankly I have not read it all.
    Having said that, this troubleshooting guide should help:
    In particular, pay attention to the mobile device support sections near the bottom, assuming you have already done the items above it.

  • What can I do, iPad disabled/lockout and iTunes keeps asking for password, I cannot restore...iTunes grays out backup and restore but my iPad and iPod shows on Apple etc..

    What can I do, iPad disabled/lockout and iTunes keeps asking for password, I cannot restore...iTunes grays out backup and restore but my iPad and iPod shows on Apple etc..???

    Try and force iPad into Recovery Mode:
    1. Turn off the device: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the device to turn off.
    If you cannot turn off the device using the slider, press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same time. When the device turns off, release the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons.
    2. Connect USB cable to computer, leave the other end alone
    3. Press and hold the Home button down and connect the docking end of cable to iPad
    4. Continue holding the Home button until you see the "Connect To iTune" screen
    5. Release the Home button
    6. Open iTune
    7. You should see "iTunes has detected an iPad in recovery mode"
    8. Use iTune to restore iPad
    Note: You need to be patient and repeat the above many times to recover your iPad

  • ITunes keeps asking for a disk while I am trying to uninstall

    I am trying to uninstall iTunes so that I can reinstall it.  However, it keeps asking for a disk.  Also I have tried to use Windows Cleanup Utility 7.2, but get an error when I attempt to run it.  I think I may have started uninstalling the components in the wrong order.  Any help is appreciated.  I am using Windows 8.

    For general advice see Troubleshooting issues with iTunes for Windows updates.
    The steps in the second box are a guide to removing everything related to iTunes and then rebuilding it which is often a good starting point unless the symptoms indicate a more specific approach. Review the other boxes and the list of support documents further down page in case one of them applies.
    If you cannot get a component to uninstall properly move on to the next one, then delete the named folder. The reinstall should be successful.
    Your library should be unaffected by these steps but there is backup and recovery advice elsewhere in the user tip.

  • Outlook 2010 + Exchange 2010 keeps asking for credentials - Please Help!

    Hello All,
    Recently after a Windows Update + restart of my Exchange Server I'm having an issue with Outlook 2010 where it continually asks for credentials. Every 5 minutes or so the credentials popup appears and either typing your password or clicking cancel will make
    Outlook work as expected again until the next popup, frequency of popups is about 2-5 minutes give or take. I am using Exchange 2010 on Server 2008 R2 and aside from the popup everything is working as expected. This seems to be effecting almost all users.
    Some things I've tried already include:
    - Removing any saved credentials on computer
    - Removing and recreating Outlook Mail Profiles
    - Running "Set-AutodiscoverVirtualDirectory -Identity 'autodiscover (default Web site)' -WindowsAuthentication $true -BasicAuthentication $false" in shell to disable basic authentication for autodiscover
    - Running "get-outlookanyhwere | set-outlookanywhere -ClientAuthenticationMethod NTLM -IISAuthenticationMethods NTLM" in shell to ensure that outlook anywhere and IIS are using NTLM authentication
    - Ensuring that the OAB folder permissions are set to allow Authenticated Users to Read/Execute
    Anyways, if anybody has additional suggestions for me I'd very much appreciate them. Many users are using the Web App for the time being (with no issues) since the credentials popup is too annoying for them.

    So I made sure that all of my authentication methods match the settings you linked me and then recycled the app pool you mentioned but am still having the issue.
    One thing I noticed is that if a user experiencing the problem types their password into the credentials popup it will keep popping up continuously but if they hit cancel it says "Needs Password" where it would normally say "Connected to Microsoft Exchange"
    and if they simply click once where it says "Needs Password" then all of a sudden it switches to "Connected to Microsoft Exchange" again and they no longer see the popup until Outlook is restarted.
    Just to verify I have the proper settings now this is what shell returns:
    [PS] C:\Windows\system32>Get-WebServicesVirtualDirectory | fl *auth*
    CertificateAuthentication     :
    InternalAuthenticationMethods : {Ntlm, WindowsIntegrated, WSSecurity}
    ExternalAuthenticationMethods : {Ntlm, WindowsIntegrated, WSSecurity}
    LiveIdSpNegoAuthentication    : False
    WSSecurityAuthentication      : True
    LiveIdBasicAuthentication     : False
    BasicAuthentication           : False
    DigestAuthentication          : False
    WindowsAuthentication         : True
    [PS] C:\Windows\system32>Get-AutodiscoverVirtualDirectory | fl *auth*
    InternalAuthenticationMethods : {Basic, Ntlm, WindowsIntegrated, WSSecurity}
    ExternalAuthenticationMethods : {Basic, Ntlm, WindowsIntegrated, WSSecurity}
    LiveIdSpNegoAuthentication    : False
    WSSecurityAuthentication      : True
    LiveIdBasicAuthentication     : False
    BasicAuthentication           : True
    DigestAuthentication          : False
    WindowsAuthentication         : True
    Do you have any additional suggestions that I can try? From what I can tell my authentication methods all match the default settings now.
    Edit: As soon as I changed EWA to just Basic Authentication as it says in the linked default settings I would get an error when trying to browse to the EWA that said "Outlook failed to initialize" and re-adding the Windows Authentication, then running iisreset
    fixed the issue. Therefore EWA is the only service with non-default authentication methods now.

  • SBS2008 in combination with Outlook 2013 keeps asking for credentials

    I've got a SBS 2008 server with windows 7 pro clients.
    Some of them use outlook 2010 and some use 2013.
    The users which use the 2013 version has a problem with saving of the credentials.
    Every time they start outlook 2013 they will be asked for credentials and some of them 5 times before it starts.
    The weird thing is: if you click ESC to close the screen that asks for the credentials, outlook still connects to the mailbox.
    Is there someone who can tell me how to fix this problem.

    Hi Willy-Billy,
    Any update? Would you please let me know the current situation of this issue?
    In addition, would you please let me confirm something more?
    Please check if problematic user accounts access mailbox correctly via OWA.
    If you create a new outlook profile for a problematic account, will encounter the same issue?
    As mentioned in the link that Robert provided, please check if you enable
    Always prompt for logon credentials setting in Outlook 2013.
    If you enable this setting, please uncheck and monitor the result.
    Meanwhile, please remove the old credential in
    Credential Manager, then add again. Please check if this issue still persists.
    Please run
    SBS 2008 BPA to collect SBS configuration information and analysis. Then check if you can find some clues.

    Hope this helps.

  • Outlook 2010 keeps asking for credentials

    We have a Exchange 2013 server with outlook 2010 clients wich constanly ask for credentials.
    even with the option save credentials on.
    The Exchange servers are hosted and the clients are not part of a domain and use Outlook Anywhere.
    Outlook 2013 clients do not have this problem.
    I tried several things:
    -new profile
    -rename ProtectSystemProider folder
    - dword registry Savecredentials
    - removed ProtectSystemProvider registry key
    - Removed or edited credential manager accounts
    We have this problem on serveral Windows 7 clients and Remote Desktop Server 2008 r2 sessions.
    Hope anyone can help me.

    Hi Cris,
    Please try to clean up the cached credential in your computer. Then fill in with the format of UPN when it prompted for credentials next time and check the Remember my credential to save it. About how to remove cached credentials, please follow these steps:
    1. Launch the Credential Manager from Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Credential Manager.
    2. In the Generic Credentials section you’ll see a setting for [MS Outlook] which will include your SSO details. Click the downward-pointing arrow to the right of that value.
    3. In the expand details, click Remove from vault. Then Outlook will no longer have a stored copy of your password.

  • ITunes keeps asking for my password

    First, it's important to note that what I'm about to describe is happening only in my MacBook Pro account, not on my iMac account; nor is it happening on my wife's MBP account, nor on her iMac account.  In other words, it's highly probable that some (inadvertent) action of mine has actually enabled this annoying 'feature' of iTunes.  I just can't figure out what I can do to stop it.
    The Problem:
    For the past couple weeks, the iTunes application on my MacBook Pro has been displaying (intermittently) an alert to notify me that I need to enter my User Name (supplied) and Password (which I must enter manually) so that it can continue to make "authorized downloads."  Interestingly, iTunes displays this notice irrespective of whether the application is even running at the time.   I understand that iTunes may need to check in periodically (in the background) with the Apple Store, but I can't figure out why it is no longer able to do this without my authorization every single time.  Here are the steps I've tried so far, to no avail:
    a.  iTunes Preferences > General > Check for new software updates automatically (turned off);
    b.  iTunes Preferences > Store > Always check for available downloads (turned off);
    c.  iTunes Preferences > Store > Automatically download pre-orders when available (turned off);
    d.  I have signed out of the Store, Quit iTunes and Logged out.  Then I logged back in, opened iTunes and Signed In to my account again;
    e.  I have selected iTunes > Store > View My Account and turned OFF "Recommendations and Ping Posting;"
    f.   I have selected iTunes > Store > View My Account and clicked the button to "Reset all warnings for buying and downloading;"
    g.  In the very alert containing my User Name and Password I have checked the box beside "Remember Password;"
    h.  About 10 minutes ago, I opened iTunes Preferences and in the Advanced pane, I clicked on the Reset warnings button beside "Reset all dialog warnings." If this most recent effort finally does the trick — I won't know for sure until several more hours elapse — I promise to log in to let everyone know.

    UPDATE 2:  As promised, I am writing to let everyone know that I believe that I finally may have resolved this problem.  The procedure that seems to have resolved the issue on my computer was one that another user, Mandoskier,  reports having resolved the same problem on his computer (, in which he reported the following:  "This problem was solved for me by trashing "" from userid/Library/Preferences folder and repairing disk permissions."
    I trashed that file two days ago, and also repaired disk permissions (using Disk Utility) and iTunes hasn’t once asked for my password!
    May not work for everyone, but it’s worth a try if you haven’t yet given this recommendation a shot.  Good luck, all.

  • Itunes keeps asking for me to authorize purchased songs again and again

    I placed all my songs on an external harddrive. Then I got a new computer. I am now using a Vista machine with an Intel Dual Processor. I placed the songs on a new internal harddrive using SATA. I reinstalled Itunes, etc. Now, whenever I ask for a song purchased from Itunes to play, it says that the machine is not authorized to play the song. So I put in my password and a prompt comes up indicating that my machine is now authorized to play the song. I push okay. The song does not play. If I push the play button, a new prompt comes up saying agin that my machine is not authorized to play the song. I then put in the password and a new prompt says that my machine is now authorized to play. I again push okay, but the song does not play and I do this again and again and again.
    I have tried to get rid of the sd file. I have tried changing my password. I have tried changing my ID. I have never changed my account. It's always been the same one since I joined Itunes in 2004 or 2005. I have purchased 280 songs since then, so I'm really upset that I can't access those purchased songs. Everything that is not purchased works fine.
    I should say that my new computer stutters sound and video a little bit. I've done some things to minimize that but it still happens. I don't know if the two are related.
