Hello SharePoint saviors, I'm trying to extend a web application that uses claims based authentication to utilize FBA. I'm following this TechNet article http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee806890.aspx which seems fairly straight forward,
the only difference being that it seems to be geared towards a new web application whereas I'm extending an existing web app (is this the problem?). However, after following the instructions my web application fails...both the default web application and the
extended web application.
My application uses a default zone with Windows Authentication using NTLM. I'm attempting to extend the web app using FBA as an extranet zone which will use LDAP for authentication. I suspect I'm missing a key element to the web.config file for
SecurityTokenServiceApplication. Here's the modified section of web.config for SecurityTokenServiceApplication with the actual server name replaced. I know there is a problem with this particular service because the health and monitor analyzer
tells me the service is unavailable in central administration. Help!
