Log in requires domain name before username

  Asked By: Stephanie    Date: Jan 16    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 4443

How can I set it up so that my users only have to type in their actual
username instead of domain\username to login to Sharepoint? When
users log in from inside the network it is not an issue for us. But
when they are logging in over a VPN etc... i want to make it as easy
as possible for them. (we are dealing with users here).

I know this is possible as we subscribe also to a hosted Sharepoint
site, and it does not require that you type in domain first.

While we were using Windows Integrated Auth, we could never get around the domain\username issue. Switching to basic auth solved that issue  but created another one (almost as big) requiring users  to login  again when opening an application through SP such as Word ..

That is the nature of Basic Authentication.

After being here at devConnections this week in Orlando, I’m increasingly convinced that v3 will make all of our SP lives a little easier J. It seems that MS at least heard the limitations of managing and administrating SP and has addressed, at a minimum, the core problems of v2.

and many accolades went out to you and your knowledge of the CEWP.
