I have milestone essential 2.0b and mobileServer 1.0a installation on windows 7 (64 bit) machine. Initially I tried to install mobileServer 1.1a but installation wasn't successfull due to .net 3.5 issue ( many times discussed on this forum). Instead 1.0a was working fine until server physical restart. On mobile client I see message credentials are not valid, even I haven't changed anything. After reinstallation of mobileServer 1.0a system starts working till next reboot.
Could you please advise that shall I do or where to check?
Also I saw a post where milestone team provided Beta mobileServer which doesn't check .net version, it might be helpful for me as well.

Thank you in advance

i called milestone and they pointed me to a regedit tweak that worked,
in case it could help, run this file prior to instalation:
then run the 1.1a instaler and it should work fine

Vuillermoz, thanks a bunch for replying here - I think/hope this solves a long-standing issue I've had with several - but not all - servers regarding the unexplained loss of recognition of valid users via Mobile Clients - and the 'error response,' if you could call it that, appears to be different for different Clients (iPhone, Android, etc.).

If you would be so kind - do you remember exactly who in Milestone was able to share this 'fix' with you??? I am desperate to connect with more talent there...

The fix was actually in regard to the install issue and the detection of the .net framework. I would be ... suprised.. if it solved any issues with connectivity.

There's a few troubleshooting steps in the attatched guide, specifically in regard to the mobile server log files. We have seen quite a few cases where "something" else was coming up on the imageserver port post reboot. If its another web server albeit Mcafee and some other virus scanners use a web agent for management or of course IIS, then if this responds to the http request it will seem as though the mobile server is dropping authentication.

Food for thought at any rate.

Keep us informed how you get on.

Thanks, Justin.

I will review your guide, and post on future results.

The servers I build are all using Microsoft Security Essentials and no other virus package. Only a couple of them have consistently exhibited this "loss of valid credentials recognition" issue (even though they are all nearly identical and used only for Milestone server), and I can't explain why others have not. But on those that do, only uninstalling the Mobile Service and re-installing it will fix it consistently. I've looked at the Microsoft System Logs, and can see nothing obvious.

As this takes days to weeks to show up, I am assuming it's after a restart following Windows auto updates, but I cannot be sure, as there's no way that I know of to tell that it's stopped working properly, other than to try to log in via a mobile client. That's why I assumed it addressed the issue, as my post re-install and reboot/restart worked properly. I have one system left that I have not run this .reg script on - I'll see if I can 'force' it to fail with a restart/reboot.

Thanks for helping to make this forum more useful.
