creating users

  Asked By: Pankaj    Date: Oct 26    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 958

our actual requirement is to create a new user directly in the share point
(either from Central administration) in WSS 3.0

Right now we are creating a new
user in the following manner:
File> Administrative Tools> Computer

Here we are creating a new user
and adding the respective user in the created share point site with the required

Now we want to
create the same type of user directly in the share point without using any
coding or .net
Do we require
MOSS for creating such type of users?

That's a completely different question than what I thought I was answering.
MOSS/WSS need a source for user  accounts “ either a Windows user (AD
preferred, but a local user like you are doing now will work for a single server
environment) or some other kind of user that can be used for Forms-based
authentication. There is really only 1 way to do this without requiring a
separate user creation step (what you describe) or code (forms-based
authentication). Take a look at "Active Directory Account Creation Mode"
for WSS “ it has some limitations and requires an AD environment, but it will
do the on-demand account creation it looks like you are looking for.

Actaually we followed the below link. it contains a video, a walkthrough of
Forms Based authentication.


But we are getting Unknown error some times and also Access denied ..Sign in as
a different user  not able to know where the problem is actually. according to
the video the site  is being created  in default web site but we are creating  out
of it. do we really need to create  a sharepoint site under Default web site in
IIS? in our case while creating a new web applicaion in sharepoint central
adminstrator "Using existing IIS website" is getting disabled. how can we make
it enable.

we tried this in almost 4 different servers and more than 30 times..but still no
till now only in one server we were able to succed but the next day its not
working again.
please help me in this ..as its the urgent requirement  from my cllient and also
more useful for me.
