Hi,

I was asked if the following was possible?

A sort of intranet blog where people could (easily ...) create posts using their usual network (Windows AD) logins.

If yes, why software would I need to install on the server (windows 2008R2)?

Thanks

I thought about SharePoint too. I'm downloading the free Foundation version version to see if it's not too complex or not too much overkill for our needs ...

I checked and blogs are available in the free Foundation version. You'll want to use SharePoint 2013 and its not recommended that its installed on a DC if this is a small environment.

Otherwise they can use SharePoint through Office 365 account and sync their usernames and passwords via DirSync. They would then have a public-facing website that has blogging available. (that's including in the default set-up)
