Server error: The native implementation module for the security package could not be found in the path. cause: The native implementation module for the security package could not be found in the path.

This error can occur intermittently when there is a problem with IWA authentication. If you have implemented IWA, you might want your admin to review the steps to make sure none were missed. 


SAS Employee



Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA) is a Microsoft technology that is used in an environment where users have Windows domain accounts. With IWA, the credentials (user name and password) are hashed before being sent across the network. The client browser proves its knowledge of the password through a cryptographic exchange with the web application server.

SAS Employee



Make sure the web browser is passing delegated credentials to the SAS Web Server. You should see a message in the SAS Logon log like this:

... INFO - Received credentials for <USER_NAME>


If not, check the web browser settings.

i suppose i haven't told my guy explicitly which log file to share with me

other pieces of information that don't mean much to me but may mean something to the community

 - my chrome browser does not recognize my SAS Visual Analytics server as a secure site and shows a line-through the https portion of the url and advises not secure with the red triangle icon to the left of the addreess entry

 - i am using chrome Version 60.0.3112.78 (Official Build) (32-bit) 

 - the fatalconnectionfactoryexception is intermittent
