MOSS 2007 can only grant permissions to users in the local domain...

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Greetings all,

Where ever I go and attempt to add a user to a group or to grant permissions to a user I am never able to select users from other domains.  The only users I can select are users in the domain where MOSS 2007 was installed.  Is there a setting in MOSS that I need to change to be able to add users from other domains to groups in SharePoint?

Thanks for any and all insights.

MOSS 2007 - "next 100" link missing from permissions pages


We're running two MOSS 2007 environments that are (should be!) identical for Development and Validation.  We don't have Production set up yet to compare...

In DEV, when you go to the Site Settings > View All Site Settings > People and Groups > Groups, you see a "1 - 100 >" link at the top right to page to the next 100 groups.  In VAL, we do not see that link even though we have more than 100 Groups (the list ends on the first page with the letter "l").

Everything we have looked at between the two systems looks identical, has anyone seen something similar and has a fix?  At this point we're waiting until we get the PRD environment set up to compare because we're stumped.  Any help would be appreciated, thanks!


Authentication for External Users to Access MOSS 2007 Resources

Our MOSS 2007 supports users from two domains that authenticate using windows.  Our clients WindowsXP in domain#1 and WindowsVista in domain#2 (which has presented problems authenticating to MOSS 2007.  I would like to give access to external users outside of those two domains.  However, our management does not want to establish trusts between domains.  What would be the best practice to accomplish this?  Additionally, will MOSS 2010 or Forefront resolve these issues?

Limit MOSS users to specific domain only

Hi guys, I need to set MOSS portal so it will be available to one particular domain user only.

I supposed it had to make the trick but still users from trusted domains could login on portal. Am I missing something?

Full Control users only able to edit Shared Version of page in MOSS 2007

Hi, In MOSS 2007 we have a site collection that does not allow the owners to edit pages. There is no broken inheritance in the permissions, and when a user clicks "Site Actions" and then "Edit" they get a toolbar saying they are only editing the Shared Version of the page. No pages are checked out to any other users either and the users attempting this (including the Farm account) are not able to edit these pages. What would be the next steps to debugging this problem as it is not one I have encountered previously?

Granting external non-domain users SharePoint 2007 access?

Hello all,

As you can well surmise, I've installed SharePoint 2007 on a server and require assistance. We have two sites. The primary site is for internal use only and the other site, a sub-site, is for communications and collaboration with select colleague organizations who are not members of our domain. How can I add these users to allow them access to this sub-site without giving them user accounts in our domain?

What I have done so far is enable SSO and add our users to have rights on the root site. That all works. I then created the sub-site. As a test from a thread I found, I added my GMail account username as a local user account on the SharePoint server. This did, indeed, allow me to add that user and give him rights to login, but I discovered that there is no way to modify the user's profile and, thusly, cannot specify an email address. What good is SharePoint is you can't get email notifications from it?

It then occured to me to create a new user group in the DC and create accounts for them there while at the same time limiting their access to only the SharePoint server and not have any local or remote login rights. Interestingly, the accounts will login after three tries, and then shows blank pages.

Anyway, what I need is to get these users in, have enough profile information that they can receive email from the server as neede

Users having problems logging in. Using MOSS 2007


There seems to be problem for people logging on to our sharepoint site, they are asked for their password over and over again until IE gives them error OR they can login, but every single operation performed on the site asks them for their password.

-I have made the users add the url to trusted sites in IE->Internet options

-I have made them mark 'Automatically login with same user & pass'  under User authentication in IE-> Internet options


How do I fix this. Has this something to do with firewalls on the server or is this a browser problem?

Users who do not have permissions to access InfoPath 2007 web based form can view the form if someon


I have a SharePoint Form Library with an InfoPath form published to the form as the default template. The form library has several forms in it that have line item permissions. This is supposed to restrict who can view the form. If the user who has had their permissions removed navigates to the form through SharePoint the form does not display (this is expected behavior). However if the user is provided a link to the URL for the form then the can view the InfoPath form.

Here is an example of the link: http://moss.companyname.com/test/_layouts/FormServer.aspx?XmlLocation=/test/InfoPath%20Test/system2009-10-23T12_23_13.xml&Source=http%3A%2F%2Fmoss%2Ecompanyname%2Ecom%2Ftest%2FInfoPath%2520Test%2FForms%2FAllItems%2Easpx&DefaultItemOpen=1

In addition I tried to put the forms into a folder and restirct the permissions on the folder, but the restricted users can still view the form.

When I removed the users permission to the form library then they got an error message.

I also tested this with a SharePoint list item and restricted permissions and this did not allow the user to view the item.
