Users from different domain

Mar 3, 2014 at 5:38 PM

Trying to get this to work. I have the following setup:
Domain A has ADFS Server + ADFS Proxy + DC
Domain B host the SharePoint server configured for Claims + DC.
Domain A and B are different companies, so there is no relationship or trust between the domains. Users for Domain A can log on to SharePoint, but when using people picker it doesn't find or resolve any users...unless using the full "SAML string".

How can this be fixed? is it a job for a developer to customize LDAPCP, or is it just a configuration issue? I've looked at the two configuration pages and the LDAP connection setting is interesting. Do I have to set that connection to Domain A? Right now it set to "Same Domain as SharePoint".

indeed you need to change settings in LDAPCP administration page if you want to establish a connection to Domain A, but you need to open LDAP port for this to work.
Note that if you need to query both domain A and domain B, then you need to do some code and override SetLDAPConnections() method to specify both connections.
You can download package "LDAPCP 2013 for" to see an example of that.
