I have a publishing site collection extended into two zones: Zone1: (default zone, win auth only- internal users) Zone2: (internet zone, fba only- external users)
I want zone1 users to be able to add fba users to the site collection w/o actually enabling FBA users to log in to zone 1 (b/c in the fba/zone2 I do things like hide the ribbon).
Also, I don't want to enable win auth on zone2 because I don't want to confuse external users by presenting them with a choice over which type of credentials to enter (fba vs win).
Is there a way to make FBA users visible to my zone1 site w/o actually enabling forms authentication? I had made all the corresponding FBA web.config changes in zone 1- but this doesn't seem to have helped.
