  • Remove need for DOMAIN\Username for IIS / SharePoint

    Hi all

    I have a fresh SharePoint 2007 (SP2) installed on a Windows Server 2008 R2 box. It is a stand alone box running as a DC. I would like to remove the need for users to log in using the DOMAIN\username method and just use their username. How can this be done and keeping the best security?

    Thanks in advance

    Hello tonyyeb!
    Give this a try:

    1. Open Internet Explorer -> "options".
    2. Add the SharePoint server name to the "trusted" zone.
    3. Go to Custom Level and scroll to last option and change it Automatic logon with current username and password.
    4. You may also do it for Intranet Zone if required.

    More over - it's a DC, be sure to check configurations such as IE protected browsing.

      I assume this is supposed to be done on a client machine as I can't see how it would affect the server. I don't have an Experts Exchange account so I can't see the source. If so then this is outside of my control as I don't have any access to the client machines being used.

      Thanks for your efforts but this one is a no go.

        Used Venom83 method on SharePoint Servers 3.0 and it still required domain\username .

        Chris, I just checked the EE solution and it was a Forced Accept so there is no feedback that it actually worked. The EE post mentions that you can make that setup via a GPO.

        http://support.microsoft.com/kb/832769 - Relates to SharePoint Services v2 & 3 so it probably doesn't relate but it may give you an idea or something else to look for.
        1 1 was a racehorse.
        2 2 was 1 2.
        1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
        2 2 1 1 2

          Thanks for that buddy, i'll see where it takes me.

          I could use basic authentication but then i'd need an SSL certificate to ensure usernames/passwords are kept secure.

          I'm thinking I might go for a forms based one but then that too would need an SSL i'm thinking?

            Venom83's method works providing you are currently logged on as the appropriate user with access granted to SharePoint. I tend to just add the sharepoint sites to the Intranet zone.

            Follow biggles suggestion for your scenario.
