slightly OT: ADAM for SharePoint external access on SBS box

  Asked By: Ami    Date: Jan 30    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1243

I have searched MS KB, MSDN, and the google for this answer, so blame my search
skills and not my laziness. I am running WSS 3.0 on an SBS2k3 R2 Pro box. I am
trying to enable external (non-domain users) access using forms-based access and
ADAM. I can't install ADAM on the box no matter what I try. I suspect this is a
"feature" of SBS (kind of like no trusting outside domains), but I can't find
any answers on the internets. Does SBS2k3 disable/block ADAM? Is there a
workaround to allow external FBA for WSS in SBS?

BTW, this question is for a developer box, not a production system. I'm not
trying to cheat Mark Crall of his well-earned $$$ ;>)

Even if you can't use ADAM you should be able to setup pluggable authentication
in SharePoint pointing to a SQL database.
