Our users have started to adopt the new MySites, which is great! For the first time, we're getting questions like: "How do I add my photo into MySites" and "How do I build my professional network" or "Wow, the ask me about is a great
feature!". These are most definitely wins for Microsoft (and their team's hard work).
However, we're also getting some questions, one of which has to do with why people are required to log in 1-2 extra times as they pass from our Intranet portal to their Mysite.
Theoretically, shouldn't the AD/login authentication information be passed directly through to the MySite? What can we do to make the transition from corporate intranet to mysite more seamless, e.g., not require an extra 1-2 logins?
Several notes w/ information:
(1) The Intranet and MySites resides on the same server, but (of course) are different site collections
(2) We're using standard authentication (not Kerberos)
(3) Both servers are on ssl - but that shouldn't make a difference, should it?
Thanks so much!
