I've got a SharePoint 2010 in 1 site collection and I have a MySite host site collection in a different web application. I am running into a scenario like this: - access the site - prompted multiple times - the site may load, but more often than not, it just sits and spins without ever loading in full.
I've tested against pages that have no special webparts on them, and they load fine. But if I interact with the user profile in any fashion, I run into these authentication issues. For instance, in one project I had a webpart that interacted with discussion boards (posting and viewing threads by users). In my current project, I have a NewsGator Activity Stream webpart that pulls posts by users, as well as, their profile pic.
Has anyone experienced this same behavior with iPad/Safari? It works great with iPad/Chrome, so it has to be something with Safari mobile. It also has a dependency on the environment, because the site runs fine in their environment (after securely logging into their environment).
So my thought is that this has something specific to do with how Safari mobile authenticates against a SharePoint 2010 site. If I use simple windows authentication, I run into problems. But if I authenticate into the environment first, it works fine.
Please tell me I am not alone and that there is a real solution when the scenario is using simple windows authentication in an internal environment...
