none
default domain name RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have FIM 2010 (R1) setup for Self Service Password Portal (SSPP), it works great but a lot of users don't know their domain name when filling in username in the password reset page. I am not passing credentials from windows IE as these are shared computers using generic logons.

    I need to just accept the username without the domain or force a default domain name.

    I found the following TechNet article for FIM 2010 R2 but i cant find the setting <customizedsettings> in any web.config document on the server.

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj134306(v=ws.10).aspx

    DefaultDomainName

    A valid domain.

    The following setting is relevant to:

    • Reset Portal

    <customizationSettings>

    This value is the default domain that will be used for fallback if a user enters a username without a domain in the reset portal.

    Example: <add key=” DefaultDomainName” value=”CONTOSO” />


    Can someone please help me find the right web.config (there seem to be loads) as i have tried them all and none have the above entry.

    Many thanks,


    Martin

    FIM 2010 (R1) SSPR Portal is a very simply portal just invoking the ActiveX

    We don't support customization.

    We suggest you upgrade to R2 for a much better user experience

  • Thanks for the quick response David,

    So do i just add the lines to these files, even if the <customizationsettings> area does not exist already?

    DefaultDomainName

    A valid domain.

    The following setting is relevant to:

    • Reset Portal

    <customizationSettings>

    This value is the default domain that will be used for fallback if a user enters a username without a domain in the reset portal.

    Example: <add key=” DefaultDomainName” value=”CONTOSO” />

  • Unfortunately these directories dont exist and in the ones that do, we cant find the web.config files.

    

    Are you sure these are the correct locations for FIM 2010 ( NOT R2....)

    Is there any other way to force theDomain name prefix when accepting users credentials please?

    Thanks,

    Martin
