Limit MOSS users to specific domain only

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hi guys, I need to set MOSS portal so it will be available to one particular domain user only. I turned anonymous authentication off and delete all items from  Visitors group except  <my domain name>\domain users . I supposed it had to make the trick but still users from trusted domains could login on portal. Am I missing something?

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


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.

Customized list views and permissions to specific group users

Hi, I have created a custom list with 20 field/columns in wss3.0. I had four user groups(group1, group2,....3.....4) in my site collection with various levels of permissions. I have created four custom views (Group 1 view, Group2 view,...etc)in my list. Each view contains only certain fields out of 20. For example group 1 view contains field 1, 5, 7,10 and 13 of every item in my list.  My requirement is that when a user login, who is a member of group1. he should be able to view only Group1 view fields. He should not able to view other field/columns. I tried creating another field/column called as restricted users and wrote group names in that. In the View edit page I selected " show item when the column 'restricted users' is equl to [Me]. But I did not get it. Kindly help it out any one either programmatically or UI based. 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?

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?  

Setup Users to change domain passwords via sharepoint

Is there no way to nativally setup users to change their domain password or to notify them that the password will expire? The only way is to code a web site, is this a feature for a newer verson?

All users have "Limited access" to MOSS Site even Site Admins


hi All.

We are running MOSS 2007 Stand-alone server on server 2003 SP2.

We had perfectly running MOSS site with Document Libraries and Custom Lists with almost 10 subsites. 

Suddenly today no one can edit or upload any new items or documents.

Under "Site Permissions", all the users have "Limited Access" permission level including Site Admins as well.

I have logged in as Site Admin and "Edit user Permission" under "Site Permissions" is not available anymore.

I know its a security issue but is there any way I can reset the security settings on Parenet Site.

(All the the subsites inherit security from the parent site)

LDAP Domain Users Access denied Error


I have a MOSS 2007 test server setup and have configured Forms Based Authentication on Internet site (just an extension of the main portal site) that authenticates via an LDAP Active Directory server. Most of it works. I can import profiles from the LDAP provider and LDAP users can authenticate to the FBA URL.

The problem I'm running into is with LDAP groups and the Role provider. If I add an LDAP users to a Sharepoint permissions group directly, he can log in and access the site with no problems. However, if I instead add a Group from LDAP (which People Picker finds just fine) then members of that group can authenticate, but get the "Access Denied" page for the portal.

Error Access Denied

Current User
You are currently signed in as:  esmu


The relevant portions of my web.config (I have entered these into the web.config for the main portal site, the extended site for forms based authentication, and the Central Management server site (making the required change for the default role provider for the central management site): i follow these steps:

Search working for only select users in same domain


I have encountered an issue where one user is able to conduct a search and retrive a full list of results but another user in the same domain and same membership group recieves no results at all.  Our environment is complex with several domains each trusting one another.  The SharePoint build is as follows:


2 Front End Servers with Loadbalance, 1 Application Server, 1 Index Server


So far I have tested with a user that cannot get results from a terminal client, desktop cleint and VPN remote access in all cases the user is unable to return results.   This user has accounts in 2 domains and when selecting to log on as a different user in the other domain results are returned.  I beleived then that it had to be an account issue in the other domain.  However when I worked with another user who also has accounts in both domains that user was not able to return results with either account.  So I am not sure it is domain account related.


I setup a dev box in the domain and made it bare bones with no load balancer, however when I add the user account who was having issue and a search is run no results are returned. 


The search database appears fine and healty and data is populating the tables

Forms based authentication allow only specific users from database table


I have the following implementation and I'm sure there is an easy way to do what I want to do but I can't figure it out. 

1. I use forms based authentication to authenticate to my site

2.  I use active directory to authenticate the users

3.  I use the Allow Users="xxx" tag to authorize the users limited to the list that can access my site. (e.g.. even though Mary is an AD user she can't access my site unless I put her credentials in the allow users tag in the web.config file)

All is working well but I want to move the users access list (e.g.. <allow users="john" />" from the web.config to a database table so that I can create a user maintenance page for my admins to add and delete user access.   For the life of me I can't figure out how to do this and I can't seem to find an article on it either.  I'm sure I'm just not looking for the right thing, so help is greatly appreciated. 

Here is my web.config file..

        <add name="DBConnectionString" connectionString="Data Source=PRIMSRV;Initial Catalog=MAINDB;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=svc.Test;Password=password

Users dont have permissions to core.css on specific site


I have a sharepoint website where somehow the permissions on it got messed up.  Users with read access can get to the site, but when they get thier the site is messed up.  I can replicate the look by disabling core.css on the site.  I checked and the users do have core.css in the source, but If you try to load it you get access denied.

The masterpage is referencing the core.css file that is relative to the site, not the one in _layouts.

How do I fix this permissions issue, It seems liek the only way to access core.css is through sharepoint designer and in there I cant see a way to fix the permissions.

List Item is not visible to specific users in a webpart in my portal

Your quick help will help us a lot.



Not able to add all users from other trusted Domain to site collection


The environment consists of a one-way trust relationship, I have no problems adding users from the local domain, however I can only add a few select users from the domain that the trust is setup for. This appears to be the case for only one site collection, as a previous site collection can authenticate to and add users from this other trusted domain. 

I have checked the following article in order to authenticate objects in the other trusted domain, but it appears to have not helped.


What steps should I verify so that I can add users to given stie collections?
