Authenication Issue in Loadrunner

Hi All,

I 've faced a issue in loadrunner  while reply back the script .

Here are the setps that followed.



1. In SoapUi we are getting a valid response with the request but in the same when we are trying with loadrunner it is failing with authentication error.(we passed web_set_user() method for authentication)

2. Used 3 ways to prepare the script but every time we are getting the same error.

· Importing wsdl file and prepare the script

· Importing the soapxml and prepared the script

· Used web_custom_request() and passing therequest xml on it

we are using IIS7.0 as server and the authentication is used NTLM\kerberos.

You need to set up the security according to the required by your application, check on security settings inside "protocol and security" tab in "manage services"
