Forms based authenication using Active Directory membership provider

  Asked By: Callie    Date: Apr 15    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2932

I've successfully implemented this in an environment.
If I want to add users individually, they can get access. I've change the
secondary site collection administrator to a ADProvider user.
Again, it works great. It's just AD groups don't seem to work.

What I would like to do is add all authenticated users to a certain MOSS Group
(like viewers, or contributors, etc).

I've tried:
NT AUTHORITY\Authenticated Users
ADProvider:Domain Users

Nothing seems to work...

I've scoured the web, and found nothing...

Any guru out there solved this problem yet?

To use groups  with FBA you need to implement a Role provider  in addition to the
Membership Provider. To use AD groups you need to implement a membership
provider based  on either AD or LDAP and a role provider that also maps to AD.
I've done this in the past by using AZman.msc. Take a look at the following
article on role providers.
