AD Question

  Asked By: Ernest    Date: Nov 18    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 7493

We're planning to implement an SPS/WSS solution in my company. The
problem is that we have external users that we want to give access
to our WSS server (for teamsite membership). MS suggested that we
use ISA Server to allow external access to the WSS box. The
questions is: how do we handle the credentials for the external
users? Do we allow WSS to create those users in the AD, or do we
create them in the AD and import them to WSS?

Related topics: Once the external users are in the AD, can they be
locked out of other servers/resources? When WSS creates AD users,
what Organizational Unit (OU) does it put them into? Can we control
where WSS puts the new users in the AD?

Can somebody please point me in the right direction? I'm not an AD
expert, so I'm lost about this issue.

Go to Site Settings, manage profile database, Configure Profile Import

In the Access Account Section, make sure you specify a user with
Replicate Changes permission for Active Directory directory services

I am not sure if the Power User Group has enough right to AD
