Sharepoint 2003 & Active Directory

  Asked By: Reina    Date: Jan 31    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1366

I (unfortunately) have an older SP 2003 site and in the past it has
used a separate application (.net 1.1) to redirect users to the site,
which users Windows authentication and the AD pop-up window appears.

Now we need to change to have the user/pwd on the login app and pass
that through to the SP site. In every browser but IE the formula
http://user:password@spsite.com works great. Of course you need to set
a registry key to get this to work in IE, which is (again,
unfortunately) 90% of our user base.

Can I login to AD and then just redirect to the site? Does anyone have
any ideas of how to do this?

According to this article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/825214 I
cannot use forms authentication. Apparently you can build your own
ISAPI filter and accomplish something similar for SSO (see
but I really don't know if that will solve the problem.

For what it's worth, I realized that I would have to write a custom
ISAPI filter to implement this idea. Too much work, so I decided on
another route.

My solution was to allow the user to login with AD, then add a
"redirect" web part that sends the user to another site based on what
type of user he or she is. I used the sql database but could have used
the AD info pretty easily.
