Hi there,

I have a single Sharepoint instance that is growing with the number of sites. Due to a software licnese we have for a prodcut on that SP Instance we are not allowed more than 5 sites.

We are already working on building a second SP grouping of 4 servers(front end and backend servers) for a Portal project for the company. So in summary we have two SP instances, I am not sure if this is referred to as Farms or simply groups so excuse the terminology

What i want ot do is create another SP instance so we would have the following:
1. 1 SP Server with 5 sites
2. 1 SP server with more than 5 sites
3. 4-5 server grouping for our Portal project

Can we have seamless authentication between these instances or will the users be forced to login to each grouping?

Hello,

SharePoint is based off of the logged in users AD account. So if that user or a group that that user is in has permission to view the sharepoint site then it will work no problem. Also if you want everyone to be able to view a sharepoint site add the "Authenticated Users" group to the sites permissions.

Does this mean if all memebers of the same AD and we have Sharepoint servers setup even as seperate farms (terminology I think) can they login once toa Farm or site and not be prompted when beign redirected to another Site on another SP site on a nother server cluster

Yes, as long as your Internet Explorer settings are correct.  SharePoint will not prompt for passwords for users who are already authenticated to their computers.
