Replicating a SharePoint 2007 site between Domains with no trust RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a site on our Intranet Farm (independent web app/db) that we wish to replicate on our Extranet Farm so that a separate group of external Users can access the content. We’d like to sync the content on a regular basis. There is no trust between Domains.


    We were thinking about taking the following approach:


    1.       Create an instance of the site on the Extranet Farm

    2.       Overwrite the Content Database regularly to replicate the content


    This would be relatively straightforward but I’m concerned about how SharePoint will handle the 2 different ADs and the Users within them.


    If I add the external User accounts to the Visitor Group on the Extranet Farm, will this be continually overwritten when we overwrite the Content Database?

    Will lots of errors be thrown because the Users and Admins from the “source” site cannot be found?

    Would there be any other issues?
