Unable to Log Off after enabling SSO between LDAP and NW Portal

Hi,

I have implemented SPNego mechanism on NW Portal.

Now once i enter the URL of my portal it doesnt ask me to login but allows me to enter automatically.

But when I try to log off, it is not allowing me to do so.

I have no option other than closing the browser window directly.

Though I have enabled Single Sign On between LDAP and NW Portal, It should allow me to log off and then it should force me to the login screen and prompt me to login again. Can anyone help me in this scenario?

    Hi,

    Following is the extract from the help.sap.com. The note 696294 should help you

    If you are using authentication with client certificates in the portal, you can configure what happens when users log off from the portal. By default they are redirected to the default logon screen after they log off. If the portal is set up to use client certificates, they are automatically logged on again, so it is impossible for them to log off the portal. To prevent this, you can redirect them to a screen other than the default logon screen after they log off the portal. For more information, see SAP Note 696294.

    Hi,

    SSO is enabled for a specific URL. If you logoff from the portal and the next URL your browser calls is this specific URL, SSO will be applied. This is how SSO is working. To have SSO with logoff and UIDPW you have to configure a non-SSO enabled URL:

    SAP Help: http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw70/helpdata/EN/44/aada5230be5e77e10000000a155369/content.htm

    Example: Prtaol SSO URL: http://portal.example.com

    Create a URL like http://nonssoportal.example.com (Create the name in the DNS and point it to the IP of your portal server)

    and configure the ume.logoff.redirect.url to this URL (http://nonssoportal.example.com/irj/portal)

    When you now click on the logoff link, your browser will open the page http://nonssoportal.example.com/irj/portal and ask you for your password.

    br,
