HP Software Support Site - Sorry, access denied

Hello,

 

Is anyone else receiving repeated "Sorry, access denied" error when using the HP Support Site, or am I the only lucky one.

I've been getting this randomly using the 'Case Manager', 'Self-Solve', and 'Downloads' area.

 

Thanks

Hi Dan,

 

I can access all now. Check if you can also. Else you might be having problems with either your SAID or your profile perhaps?

 

Best regards,

Dirk

I was getting this troubling error often.  In the Nov/Dec time frame it was especially irritating and I just learned to go away and come back a few hour later. It's not been that frequent in Jan.

This would happen to me if I logged into another HP site then moved over to the support area. I always had to log out completely, close my browser and try again by going directly to the support site.

[ Edited ]

I get this often enough that whenever I enter a new case, or update one of my existing ones, I save what I have written onto the clipboard before I press the "update" button so that I don't have to go back and try to remember everything to re-enter. I'd I get the error about 20-30% of the time.

 

Dirk, do you know if they have a maintenance window on Fridays? It seems like the site is usually most troublesome on Fridays...

 

Also, it seems to generate errors if I'm in the Self-solve knowledge search page and select "All Versions" instead of a specific version.

Re: HP Software Support Site - Sorry, access denied

All,

 

HP Support has acknowledged they are having issues with their SSO Site, and IE8.

The resolution is to uncheck the “Preserve Favorites website data” box in the “Delete Browser History” dialog box. (See attached screen print)

 

On occasion, I still receive the “The service you’ve requested is not available” error message.

I hope this saves everyone the trouble that I had resolving this issue.

 

Best Regards

Re: HP Software Support Site - Sorry, access denied

Hello,

 

It's been a couple of years since I've seen this issue, but it appears to be back.

 

Is anyone else receiving repeated "Sorry, access denied" error when using the HP Support Site, or am I the only lucky one.

I've been getting this randomly using the 'Case Manager', 'Self-Solve', and 'Downloads' area.

 

Thanks

Re: HP Software Support Site - Sorry, access denied

Thank God its just not me... I have been recently experiencing this "sporadic" issue a LOT too....and mostly only happens when either I am trying to create a New SR or trying to Update already open one ??   And seems to be more frequent on Fridays ..

 

Especially, Last Friday evening, I had horrific experience with this while I was dealing with a PPM Outage issue.

Hope HP resoves this soon..

Re: HP Software Support Site - Sorry, access denied

I've been getting the message and just saw this discussion. We still use IE8. Following the instructions above about unchecking the preserve data box solved my problem.

Re: HP Software Support Site - Sorry, access denied

Same here. I'm getting "Sorry, access denied" and nothing else on the page. I got it when I tried to download a software patch. It seems to work again if I try from another browser. Sometiems it works agin when I refresh or attempt from FireFox or another computer.

 

It's on the Support end. There's nothting wrong with my SAID's or my access. It's really obnoxious and wastes a lot of time. IT would be appropriate for HP to take it seriously and fix the problem.

 

BMC's support site doesn't have this problem :p

Re: HP Software Support Site - Sorry, access denied

Same for me and has been happening for a long time, allof last week and this. I have to run my support browser windows on a VNM to get around it. I'll try the fix in this thread and see what happens.

Re: HP Software Support Site - Sorry, access denied

I'm sad to say it has made no difference, and Chrome does it too!

ARGGGGGGGGGH!

Re: HP Software Support Site - Sorry, access denied

This is getting frustrating.  I've had this error for a couple of weeks when trying to view tickets using IE on Windows.  Is this going to get resolved or documented guidance about browser support and required configuration?

Re: HP Software Support Site - Sorry, access denied

I am getting this error regularly, even after upgrading to IE 10.0. It occurs in Firefox as well, although not as often.

Re: HP Software Support Site - Sorry, access denied

Chrome returns blank pages at sign in, as does Firefox on occasions.. Not very satisfactory is it? Access denied errors seem to be very common and are now affecting the customer base. This needs sorting out, and quickly please HP.

Re: HP Software Support Site - Sorry, access denied

This is now happening to me.  I didn't have the "preserve favorite’s website data" checked.  I have deleted ALL data from IE's cache.

Still shows up when I try to access a manual or do a search on the SSO.

 

Regards,

Jason
