    Hi Kumar,


      We'll need a little more information to help out such as... how you've configured your login module stack... what your default authentication scheme is... are there any front-end servers in play (like web dispatcher or reverse proxy)... is this machine used by only 1 user or is it more 'public'... etc.


      The simplest answer I can offer in the absence of any additional information is that the session-based cookies held in the local browser are being corrupted and the wrong user's cookies are represented to the Portal server.


      Simply put, the SAP logon ticket is a session-based browser cookie. If that cookie were properly signed (came from authorized ticket-issuing system in your landscape, usually Portal), and not expired or invalidated in any way (DNS domain changes, etc.), and it were offered to the NW Portal... you could certainly be SSO'd right along.


      Like I said, there are many ways this might happen but without additional info, the best I can say is "you've got a cookie problem".
