I've been doing some testing in sharepoint 2013 and I have come accross a rather annoying situation regarding the authentication. I have both windows authentication and forms authentication working. The forms authentication checks the creds against active directory on a DC.
The scenario in which I need both:
Windows; Fred logs in locally (internal) and is signed in automatically.
Windows; Fred logs in externally using an internal VM and is signed in automatically.
Forms; Bob is on an external network but has an internal active directory account. He then enters his internal AD creds.
The reason for this is that only users with an active directory account can access the site due to security.
I have the following active directory account: Username - User1 Fullname - User Name Password - Monkey
So if I log into sharepoint using windows authenication it will recognise me as "Name, User", the issue arrises when the same user logs in via forms. It recognises the same account as "User1".
How can I get round this?
