I'm trying to set up FBA on a SharePoint 2013 farm. I am to the point of modifying the security token service web.config file. Here i am using this Technet article.
I am confused about this part:
(replace the following)
- The distinguished name of your user container in
- The distinguished name of your group container in
First of all, I don't have access to the active directory server. So I am trying to gather this information from the SharePoint server, using a tool called ADFind.
Besides that, I'm really confused. I would understand that the first line to be the OU containing all of the users that have access. However, in this client's case they don't have a top level OU. They have a root level, and then a bunch of department OUs under it. How would I set this line?
For the group container line, is this the AD group the machine is in?
Here's what I get using ADFind, edited.
adfind -sc u:serviceaccountun dn dn :CN=username,OU=SrvsAccts,OU=SrvcAccts,DC=domain,DC=com adfind -sc c:servername dn dn :CN=SERVERNAME,OU=Servers,DC=domain,DC=com
I'm guessing the group container is this but could be wrong and I'm clueless how to set up the user container one
Any help or direction would be appreciated. Thanks!
