  • Hi Rajeshwari,

    are you sure that principalContext.ValidateCredentials function being called ?

    just write one event log and see whether this function is being executed or not.

    Why do you think you have to do this?

    For a bunch of reasons, this is not a good pattern.

  • Well, that's not what I mean.  Under no circumstances is this a good idea.

    Why aren't you checking this at the connection level such as AD Authentication in IIS?

    If you describe your scenario, we can help you build the correct pattern.
