How Can I Authenticate Web Access to a Domino Database Against Active Directory
Posted on 2008-11-10
My situation is a weird one. My company has a Notes production environment that is working fine and users can authenticate using their Active Directory user accounts and passwords. ADSync is not being used nor has it been installed anywhere and the accounts do seem synchronized, i.e., when a user changed their Windows password it flows over to Notes for authentication (I do not know if it is a real-time sync or if AD is being dumped out to a Domino directory periodically).
A new Notes dev box was built by another engineer (I have absolutely no Notes experience) who then walked out before the project was completed. We have the database on the dev server and it is accessible via the Domino Designer however when trying to access it via a web browser it is using the notes ID file for authentication. I have been spinning my wheels for a month now trying to wrap my head around the Domino server architecture but have had no luck at all.
How can I get the authentication for the web portion of a Domino database to run against an MS Active Directory as opposed to the Notes ID file.
Thank you very much in advance!!!!!
