Cross domain authentication

  Asked By: Shauna    Date: Oct 15    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2437

I have web server (W2K3) running WSS 2.0 SP2 and DB server (W2K3)
running SQL 2000 SP4. They are both member servers in Domain1.
Domain1 and Domain2 are child domains in different forests. I have a
one-way, external, non transitive trust setup from Domain1 to
Domain2. Meaning Domain1 trusts Domain2.
I know that the solution is:
Step 1:
stsadm.exe -o setapppassword -password testpassword
Step 2:
stsadm.exe -o setproperty -url http://<server:port> -pn peoplepicker-
searchadforests -
pv "forest:forest1.net;forest:forest2.net,<domain\user>,<password>;dom

The problem is that when I try to run stsadm –o setapppassword–
password <SomeKey> it tells me that this option is unavailable. When
I run stsadm.exe -help it does not show setapppassword or
peoplepicker-searchadforests options. Is it possible that WSS 2.0
does not support cross-domain setup with on-way trust? I've installed
WSS 3.0 and there are these options there. But not in WSS 2.0 Can
somone through some light on this issue.

It looks like you need a space between "-o setapppassword" and "-password". Note
that technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc263460.aspx is incorrect and
also missed the space. I'll send a note to the technet team to update.
