Hi all,

I have installed alfresco 4.2.c and created 4 tenants. When I try to login into any of the tenant through alfresco share sometimes I can able to successfully login and can see the user dashboard screen but sometimes it is showing "Your authentication details have not been recognized or Alfresco may not be available at this time". It is random and is failing on any of 4 tenants I created.

I have no problem when login into webclient for all the tenants with admin and other users created on the tenants

I am accessing alfresco using site name and I am using apache mod_proxy ajp configuration with reverse proxy to connect apache to alfresco.

I tried hitting directly with ip and port combination to rule out mod proxy apache issues. But I am getting the same error using ip and port also.

Please note that this error is not coming for superadmin and other users in the repository(non tenant users).

I got nothing in the log file for the failed attempts and so I have enabled debugging by following some forum post and adding below entries to log4j.properties file under /opt/alfresco/tomcat/webapp/alfresco/WEB-INF/classes

Please let me know how can I proceed further to enable more debugging and find the root cause.
