  • If you're in a MOSS or WSS enviroment, Gaya's links won't be relevant.

    The only way I know do this is to implement a full blown custom FBA solution that uses AD instead of the usual SQL backend.  This will give you control.

    What is your business requirement?  There may be an easier way.

  • Gaya Nand,

    You are misinterpreting the "propose as anaswer" function, The point of this function is for you to propose the good answers of other people. It is not for you to propose your own answers the minute you post them.

    In the present case you have even for the second time proposed your own answer after one moderator has already unproposed it (and after another moderator has said that your links are not appropriate for this forum). Neither are good actions on your point.

    Try to help people with your posts, by all means, but please in future propose other people's posts and not your own.


    Later Note: (for confused readers of this thread).

    Gaya Nand later deleted his first post to which Paul Galvin's post was a reply and in which he had twice proposed the post as an answer.

    2010 Books: SPF 2010; SPS 2010; SPD 2010; InfoPath 2010; Workflow etc.
    2007 Books: WSS 3.0; MOSS 2007; SPD 2007; InfoPath 2007; PerformancePoint; SSRS; Workflow
    Both lists also include books in French; German; Spanish with even more languages in the 2007 list.

  • You can use ASP.Net Forms based authentication with ActiveDirectoryMembershipProvider. Form based authentication gives you to work with login controls and membership provider features The ActiveDirectoryMembershipProvider helps you to validate the users against their NT ID
