How to install WSS or SPS in Active Directory Account Creation Mode?

  Asked By: Chase    Date: Dec 21    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1506

I need help in this regard, I have read so many forums and
article/books pages, but I could not find answer of this question.

There are two modes of account creation in sharepoint

1- Domain Account mode (where you have to create AD account first
and then shareping user using the web interface)

2- AD Account Creation Mode (this option is for ISP, who needs
Account creation only using sharepoint web interface, which creates
account first in AD and then in sharepoint)

By default when you installed SPS/WSS, it installed in Domain
Account Mode, we need to install in Account Creation Mode, all the
articles and forums has talked about that but no one mentioned how
to that.

After my R & D I found that, it is one time option and it can be
choosen at the time of configuration database but we installed SPS,
WSS again but no option was there.

Please, anyone can answer me in step by step format or if there is a
command using stsadm.exe then please mention that where we should
run that command.

Here is the configuration;

1- We need to installed  Domain Controller on a seperate computer and create
a seperate organization unit for external users
2- Installed SQL Server on different machine
3- Then installed Windows Sharepiont Services on a new machine which does
not have Domain controller
4- Test the wss  and Domain Controller setup before installing SPS
5- Then install  SPS on the same machine where you installed WSS
