Sign in completion failed

We are randomly getting the following authorization error: "Sign In Completion failed. The remote name could not be resolved: '' ".  The error is on the second login for both ProSeries 2016, 2017 & 2018. The error seems to be resolved if we restart the computer, however; this leads to multiple restarts in a single day and is not productive.  What can we do to fix this?  Looking at the community threads, a similar error seems to happen in September for the past couple of years.

You have a couple of options.  You can either try reinstalling ProSeries or try calling support.  The good news is, if it seems to be happening in September, it appears Intuit is at least consistent in breaking it around the same time every year :)

People come to Accountants Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
