SSO across multiple site collections

  Asked By: Vishnu    Date: Mar 07    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1772

I have SSO setup and working on my portal and am using it to connect to
a database and pull information.

I created a second site collection and cannot figure out what I have to
do in order to enable SSO on that one. I can't find anywhere to enable
on this specific site collection or to allow it to travese multiple
site collections.

Any ideas and/or suggestions?

SSO is setup  at the server level and configured in Central Administration for
the whole farm. You then make use of the service when creating things like Data
Sources in SharePoint Designer or BDC application definitions. To use it in a
second Site Collection simply make a new Data Source and point it at the SSO
service. There is no Site Collection specific  configuration necessary.

That's what I thought but when I try and add a new database
connection in SharePoint Designer I do not get an option for SSO as
an authentication method. Screenshots follow below.

Site collection  1 - working  and pulls from SQL


Site collection 2 - no option for SSO under authentication

Are both site  collections in the same farm, and both installed using
MOSS Enterprise media and licensing?

Answer #4    Answered By: Jagjit Phutane     Answered On: Mar 07

Yes, both sites are in the same farm and were installed using the
MOSS Enterprise Ed DVD. The only difference between the two I can
think of is that they are using seperate content databases.

Yes both site  collections are in the same farm and we are using the
Enterprise edition. The only difference I can think of is that they
are using different content databases.
