Unable to add users.

  Asked By: Viral    Date: Aug 10    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1213

We have a crucial problem. When trying to add users that shall grant a
documents publication in a folder, the dialog window shows up but does
not let me change to a different domain other than my own computer for
adding user (the field is simply blanked out...) The users are on a
differnt domain and we need them to permit document publications.
However, I should add that this problem does not apply when working on
the SPS server itself. But it did work before.

I had this problem  before.
It came from a DNS problem : in fact, when you want to change  the SharePoint
security, then the domains and users  are listed thanks to a DNS call to the
domain controllers.
If you want to be able to change the domain, then add  a DNS entry in the SP
server for each domain  controller you want to access.
