Subject Re: AW: ISAPI Redicect - Request Entitiy too large

If you are using authorisation header, then you are using SPNGEO. This
header encodes the users group membership in the authorisation header. By
default tomcat has an 8k maximum header, whilst users belonging to many
groups can have an authorisation token that can swell to larger than this
size. This explains why you see some people can login and others can't.

Just change the maxHttpHeaderSize to something larger than the default 8k
and you should be set. We used 32k
