Problem in adding authenticated users in project server 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    recently I have problem in adding users in project server 2010.

    ISSUE: I added nt authority \authenticated users in "style Resource Readers" but when I want to add user A in project server 2010 this error will be shown:

    "The NT account specified is invalid.  Check the spelling of the user name, verify that a valid domain was included…"

    but when I add user A for example in "style resource Readers" and then try to add this user in project server 2010 it works

    our servers are in domain X and our users are in domain X and Y

    Project Server 2010 does not support synchronizing your Enterprise Resource Pool or security groups with Active Directory users across different domains in which only a one-way trust relationship exists between domains. It is possible for Active Directory user to synchronize with SharePoint Server 2010 in a cross-forest deployment in which a one-way trust relationship exists between domains (see Resolve accounts across multiple forests (SharePoint Server 2010). However, Project Server 2010 does not support this scenario.

    You might have to add them to a SharePoint group first and then add them as a resource in PWA.

  • thanks for your quick reply

    but my issue is something else

    I don't use synchronization. I always add resource by myself. as far as I know when we install and configure project server 2010, by default nt authority \authenticated users will be added in"style Resource Readers" and this let me add users in project server 2010 one by one. if nt authority \authenticated was not added in "style Resource Readers" I couldn't add users in project server 2010.now although it is added in "style Resource Readers" I cannot add any users.

    moreover in site setting of http//servername/pwa in people picker I can find every users.as I know if it was one-way trust relationship, I couldn't see all users in other domain. but I asked AD administrator about one-way or two-way and told me it is two-way but they set some settings that it acts as a one-way

    (the type of AD is selective  two-way)

    I really got confused

    I'll really appreciate for you help
