Office Word 2007 not working as it should with Sharepoint for non-domain users
Posted on 2009-04-30
We have a client who's got the following problem: They have internal users who are logged on to a different AD domain than the one Sharepoint (2007) is running on. These users do have domain accounts for Sharepoint and are able to log in fine to the intranet.
However, when they try to download documents (also 2007) and edit these they run into trouble. First, the need to authenticate one more time (it's a bugger but ok) but when they try to open the document for editing they they get an error message. And when they try to save back the document to Sharepoint, they only access get to their local disk and thus not the document library where the document is stored as would be exptected.
Would anyone know how to configure Sharepoint in order for these users to be able to work smoothly with the information on the corporate intranet?
