SharePoint - NTLM Authentication Using Local Active Directory Plus Remote LDAP
Posted on 2011-05-10
I have SharePoint WSS 3.0 on a Windows 2003 Server Authenticating against the Active Directory on my Windows 2003 Domain Server using NTLM. This works just fine.
However, my corporate office has users that need to access Sharepoint as well. Those users are on a separate network and I must manually enter them with new credentials in my Active Directory if they want to access SharePoint. If they leave the company, I must get notified and remove them from the system. The management in Active Directory of these users is very time consuming.
I can access the corporate users through LDAP. Can I use this to provide them access to SharePoint instead of entering them manually into my Active Directory? If so, how?
