Any way to elegantly switch users in SPS2003 with SSO

  Asked By: Jasmine    Date: Dec 19    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 612

It seems Single-Sign-On (SSO) is enabled on an existing portal
installation. This is great when all one wants to do is log onto
their computer using AD or a domain-level account, and enter the
portal without having to log in again.

However, we're going to be augmenting & testing this portal for the
next few months, and need to emulate a sample user from each of the
built-in roles: Reader, Member, Contributor, Administrator, etc.

We've already created local (server-based) accounts
called "JoeReader, JoeMember, JoeContributor, etc" on the SPS2003
server, but there's NO apparent way to "log out" of the portal site,
and come back in using one of these test accounts.

Can anyone tell me if this is possible, and how to do it?

The simplest way to do this would be to disable Windows Integrated
Authentication and enable Basic authentication instead, or to disable automaticc
sending of Windows credentials in your browser settings. This will allow you to
reauthenticate by just restarting your web browser.

I'll try the browser settings first, as that's
the most "local", and will only affect my own browser's operation.

Will let you know if it solves my headaches.
