AKO is the Amry Knowledge Online portal.

One of the largest SharePoint farms.

Is your question related to the "SharePoint installation"/FBA via LDAP,
or for their LDAP implementation? If it's their LDAP implementation,
that's something you'll need to go to them with.

AKO does not run SharePoint. AKO LDAP access is not available outside of DoD.

I have a test server running MOSS 2007 and I am working to implement AKO
LDAP. I have found HYPERLINK
blogs.msdn.com/sharepoint/archive/2006/08/16/702010.aspx article which
has been a HUGE blessing on taking on this project.

Thanks for the link, it is one of the first I read
when "thinking" about betaing MOSS. It helped quite a bit. Now I am
at the point where if I can get the AKO working then I have AD, CAC,
Forms via SQL and AKO LDAP all tucked away and working concurrently on
the same portal via AA.

AKO does not use SharePoint or MOSS as its primary and
it just provides links to sites external to AKO. As to access, also
correct, only DoD but I am covered there as well.

FBA via LDAP. Any ideas? I have read the MS post, Liam's,
Andy's and no luck.

Do you mean just setting up FBA in general?

If so, start with Andrews post here:


Although he doesn't walk through an example of setting up FBA to utilize
a LDAP store specifically, it's a good step list to setting up fba.

As far as setting it up for a third part LDAP store, I haven't done
that, so can't be much help there.

Ok, then I was misinformed that AKO was running SharePoint now.

Regardless, I think you've answered his question which was my thought,
that I doubted very seriously that AKO LDAP access was available outside
the DoD.

Answer #7    Answered By: Lee Dickerson     Answered On: Nov 16

My question still hasn't been answered per se, since I realize that
no one outside DoD can access it, and even those within DoD need
special credentials, which I have as well, I was just hoping that
maybe someone here had worked with them, or in a similar situation,
already to figure this out. Alls well that "may" end well though,
I've got an MS team coming to assist so I may be able to share the
info once we figure it out. At least the part concerning how to set
up and connect to the third party... Thanks for the tip on Andy,
although I had already checked out Andy's post and it did help me out
quite a bit. Aside from the one you were thinking of I am also
referring to his post on how to set up MySites using FBA. Between he
and Liam I learned a lot, was able to implement some stuff and was
able to figure out that I couldn't do it all on my own.
