SharePoint with basic Authentication having search issue

  Asked By: Parvesh    Date: Jan 29    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1703

I have a WSS 3.0 ( SSL enabled) site on port 80 using windows
Authentication.It is accessed internally as well as externally. we have a
requirement for removing domain name at the time of login. By using only
username and password, users should be able to login. I found out a solution for
this and I changed the Authentication in IIS from Integrated windows to Basic.
and it works fine. Users are able to login without the domain name. I went
through so many blogs and they said like if we use a basic Authentication then
seach function doesn't work due to crawl database needs integrated
authentication. is there any way which can resolve the search issue?

Can anyone know about any other method for removing the domain name? would
appreciate the reply.
