Delete an Authentication Provider RRS feed

  • Question

  • If I have an alternate authentication provider added as an extended Web Application how do I delete it? I had a web application set to us the default zone and active directory. Then as a test I extended the web app and set the external zone to use ADAM as an authentication provider. Now, I want to get rid of the ADAM authentication zone but there doesn't seem to be a straight forward way to do this.

  • Assuming you want to delete the extended web app

    Go into Central Administration - Application Management
    Click Remove SharePoint from IIS website
    Under Web Application, select the web application that has the Extended web app
    You should see a drop down box that lists the first web application & the extended web application
       *The 1st web app will have (Default) if you haven't changed the zone on the first web app
       *The extended web app will have the Zone you made it when the web app is extended
    Select the radio button to Delete IIS website
    Click OK
    do an iisreset /noforce on all WFE servers when done

  • I don't have a lot of experience with this, but I'm chipping in since no one has done so so far.

     

    I would take the approach of removing the target provider(s) from web.config and then updating the appropriate place in central admin to not use FBA for that web application.

  • Thanks for that -- I probably never would've looked under anything that said "Remove SharePoint..."

    Why isn't there a Retract...? Un-extend?
