I have an Extranet that use SharePoint 2007. The users of this Site use Windows Authentication(AD) but there is also some External Partners that use this Site that don't have AD is it possible to make it so, AD and FBA are used. So the people that are already users use AD and the External Partners are set up with and use FBA. Would it be a case of extending the Web Application and then setting up FBA and both of them will now work.
Yes both FBA and NTLM can co-exists. Enabling FBA will not affect your existing site users.
This involves 3 steps
- Extend SharePoint Web Application
- Update Web Configuration entries
- Make changes in Central Admin to enable FBA
