I have a scenario where two sub-companies of a company should be deemed independent and as such need to not share any of the following
- Search - Should not rely on security trimming User
- Profiles / My Site - users my sites for sub-company a should not be visible to sub-company b users.
- Web Applications / Site Collections - each sub-company should have its own intranet and document management.
Item 3 is nice and easy regardless of what is selected to be able to carry out 1 and 2.
In theory I could create multiple search scopes for Item 1 but really I'd prefer not to have to manage scopes for each web application
Having my sites only available to members of your own subcompany is a problem to me.
Can I have two my site hosts so that the team site host and intranet for subcompany a is directed to one my site host and the team site host and intranet for subcompany b is directed to a different my site host?
If the solution is to create multiple web applications for each subcompany in a multi-tenancy environment, can I then convert an existing farm to a multi-tenanted one without uninstalling SharePoint?
The finished solution should allow users of subcompany a to access their sites as follows
And subCompany B:
The teams and intranet sites will have drastically different structures.
