Logged in with wrong User in SAP Portal

we had several issues, that users enter their own credentials during portal login but are logged in as another user, with all roles in portal and also in the attached backend systems. This issue appears (fortunatly) very rarely and we are not able to reproduce it.

The affected users do not use the same client PC nore do they use a shared client environment. Though it seems, the user gets the session cookie of another user.

Last time I saw both users-ids in the security-log of the portal (login stack) with exactly the same timestamp (microseconds), which looks really strange and unlikely.

The portal is behind a loadbalancer and two webdispatchers.

There are also proxy servers in front of the loadbalancer.

Any ideas, what could cause this issue?

Thanks in advance and best regards,

Hi Thomas

Its quite strange that the user's are using different client PC and still they are able to see each others information. This issue is mostly seen in same PC when log off do not happen properly

Still can you please have a look at the below KBA :
