SharePoint 2007, Forms Based Authentication and Microsoft Office Protocol Discovery

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#
On a SharePoint 2007 extranet site using FBA the Microsoft Office Protocol Discovery Options request is causing multiple authentication requests that must be closed. The best proposed "solution" I've found is to disable client integration for that zone. Has any other solution been found?

Form based authentication Sharepoint 2007 gets redirected to login page

Hi We have sharepoint 2007 site deployed on Windows server 2008, IIS 7.0.  We extended the web application to enable forms based authentication referring to link http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb975136(office.12).aspx#MOSS2007FBAPart1_Intro, we selected Kerberos instead of NTLM, behavior is like, when user tries to login into the site using OOB login.aspx, user again gets redirected to the login page. We tried to extend the web application again but this time we selected NTLM, but this time farm account (also is application pool identity) is not able login and exhibits same behavior as above, but for other users we are able to login. Has anyone come across this behavior? can anyone please guide me in correct the behavior? Regards, RK  Radhakrishna

Cannot Login with Forms Based Authentication to SharePoint 2010 - Issue with the SecurityTokenServic

Please be advised I have followed the steps on http://donalconlon.wordpress.com/2010/02/23/configuring-forms-base-authentication-for-sharepoint-2010-using-iis7/. I have tried to fix the following issue for a week using different farms and SharePoint 2010 installations, however I am getting the following error when trying to authenticate using Forms Based into a Claims site: Cannot get Membership Provider with name FBARoleProvider The membership provider for this process was not properly configured. You must configure the membership provider in the .config file for every SharePoint process. 1. I am certain the membership provider is configured in the SecurityTokenServiceApplication webservice as I can manage users and roles in IIS7 using the SecurityTokenServiceApplication website. 2. I am certain that membership provider is configured in the both the Claims Web Application and Central Admin as I can manage users and roles in IIS7 using their websites. 3. I know the issue is the SecurityTokenServiceApplication service as I had to set <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="true" /> to get the error above. 4. I can log into the Claims Based Application using windows authentication, however I am unable to see the users on the people picker despite that I can see them from the application's site on IIS

Forms Based Authentication in SharePoint 2010



I'm trying to figure out how to setup FBA in SharePoint 2010.  I know that FBA is now just a subset of Claims Based Authentication, but I'm confused by some of the different approaches that I've seen on some technet blogs:



Having seen the two, one doesn't setup a SQL while one does.  Both are vague in the user account that is used to manage the FBA users.  I'd like to get some clarification if that's possible.  Thanks in advance!

SharePoint 2007 - Opening an office document in portal demands authentication


Hi there,

Environemnt:  SharePoint 2007, SQL Server 2005

In order to get into Intranet portal it is required to enter USERNAME, PASSWORD [WINDOWS AUTHENTICATION]. That has been working fine for few years.

Now when the office document is opened it demands authentication, requiring the end user to enter username and pasword again. Can this be reverted? Once the credentials are entered first time to get into Intranet portal it should allow office documents to be opened without demanding authentication?

To simplyfy I would like to avoid the second time authentication while opending office document from SharePoint portal.

Help is appreciated.

Logged in Username in Sharepoint 2010 Forms Based Authentication



When using forms based authentication in Sharepoint 2010, suppose user is logged in with username "admin" and our custom membership provider name is "FBAProvider"... After logging in with this account, logged in user name is displayed like "i:0#.|FBAProvider|admin". How can make it display as it should be like just "admin"?

Thanks in advance,

Form based authentication in sharepoint 2007


Hi ,

I have implemented form based authentication(LDAP) on SharePoint site. everything working fine.But we are not able to resolve the user with display name for first time.(User are stored in active directory.)

Like if i want to give an access to user over site, we need to provide usename or email address. once it will be part of site, if i want to add that particular user in any other group of the site then display name would work fine.

Issue is only with first time adding a user on site with display name.

my observation is, once the user first time added, sharepoint keeps the profile entry in content database(UserInfo Table). so that next time, that table is reffered. thats why second time, display name will be resolved with people picker.

Please provide some help.

Forms based users being prompted for windows authentication login for My Sites photos in user lists

Here's an issue I didn't see coming for our forms based authentication users. 

We have a web application extended to an external url to handle forms based authentication for users outside of our domain. Our setup looks like this...

Internal Users/Windows Authentication - moss.domain.com
External Users/Forms Based - mossext.domain.com
My Site for Internal Users - mysites.domain.com

When our forms based users are accessing user lists, or discussion pages that display user pictures, they are getting a windows authentication login for our internal users (mysites.domain.com) who have populated their my site with personal photo.

How do we fix this?
