Hi,
I have a windows 2000 server DC that has a member windows 2003 server. On the 2003 server I have installed Sharepoint services. The problem is that eventhough I have created accounts within Sharepoint services for individuals, those individuals can not log into the Sharepoint unless I create accounts for them on the Windows 2003 server.
My goal is to use the existing info. from DC to allow users in Sharepoint.
Any idea if its possible and what I am missing?

thank you.

Sharepoint uses AD users to maintain allowed users within the portal.  You can click on security settings and allow the "authorized users" group within sharepoint to give everyone access.  If you want to give everyone access regardless of domain, use the IUSR_computername user if anonymous access is set up for the sharepoint site.  The easiest way in in a domain is the first suggestion above since sharpoint configures the  IIS site when its loaded.  Keep in mind that Sharepoint isnt directly integrated into AD and simply downloads the AD list you ask for.
