Sharing SharePoint2010 access within two different domain

Last Modified: 2012-08-14
Hi All,

I've got SharePoint 2010 already setup and working in MyDomain, suppose I'd like to allow people from the other domain to have access into the site (OtherDomain) is there anything that i should do before ?

My goal is to test whether is it easier to make some modification in the SharePoint 2010 or i can / should create another domain in the domain controller server ?

Cheers,

JJ

yes it is from the other domain completely different.
the test that I'd like to use is that my client from the extranet will be trying to login to the system rather than I create their login one by one in my AD

So yeah you would probably want to look into federation with the new Claims security model in 2010.

what is the purpose of the site?
### The test web application that we create for our client

Who will access it and for what?
### Our client from the Internet

Is your current SharePoint site accessible on the internet?
### Not yet, since I haven't secured it yet for Internet facing.

Are you looking to share an existing site or looking to setup a new one?
### Setup new one is better since I've got one already setup now, but of course I'm using DOMAIN\myusername to access it now.

are you looking at doing sharepoint site hosting or is this for collaboration between you and your client?

sounds great Guru, because at the moment I'm about to setup Windows Server 2008 Active Directory in VM which mimics the customer domain.
