XPSP2 breaks Domino Web Access

By peter.berger@genexsrvcs ·
XPSP2 seems to have broken IBM Domino Web Access. (XP 2600.xpsp2_rc1.040311-2315) is on some end user machines and in each instance DWA fails. It seems as though SP2 upgrades IE6 to v6.0.2900.2096 SP2 and causes DWA InBoxes to fail, even if we turn off the built-in popup blocker, clear cookies, offline files, history and lower security levels. Here's the error:
Status Bar reads, "Retrieving records..." and a few seconds later a popup, "Error retrieving data. Click the browser's Refresh button to reload the page." appears.
This problem happens on multiple machines, both in the corporate LAN on Dell clients and at home on an IBM clone machine. Users running XP or XP SP1 have no problems w/ DWA.
This error has been submitted to Microsoft Beta testing as an error, but knowing how M$ loves IBM products I doubt I'll see a reply.

any help/411/tips would be great. thanks in advance.

SP2 for XP is NOT out yet! It is only available in a Release Candidate form, not the official release!
You shouldn't be rolling it out on production machines, only test boxes!
So, I wouldn't be surprised it's breaking stuff. I tested it out on a test box for a month, and I was fed up with the problems and removed it.
I also submitted a few things to Microsoft on problems SP2 caused.
I would remove SP2 from these machines (after submitting to Microsoft what it is breaking), and just wait for the official SP2 release, later in the summer. Then put it on a test machine, and test the Domino web client.

DWA in regards to SP2 RC1 & 2 doesn't like the IE setting, "save encrypted pages to disk". Turn this option off so it doesn't save https pages and DWA works fine.
