FortiGate webgui login always fails first attempt

Hi All,

I have an odd issue where a FortiGate 100F HA pair always fails the first login attempt when access the webgui. We have tried multiple users and the issue doesnt occur if you logout and then login again. Also this issue doesnt happen on the CLI. They are running version 7.2.7

 

Authentication is via LDAP and from what i can see all login attempts are passing. There is a delay when the first attempt fails so assume something is timing out? 

 

Many thanks

Jamison

Hi Jamison

 

Could you verify  terms 'failing'? Are you actually failed to login or you will be auto logged out once logged in first attempt? 

You may also try to see troubleshoot guide below to see if your issue is matching any LDAP common problems listed in the KB:

Hi @Jamisons,

 

Does it happen to local admin accounts? You can run debugs mentioned in this article: https://community.fortinet.com/t5/Customer-Service/Troubleshooting-Tip-LDAP-user-is-unable-to-login-...
