Step 7: Access the SharePoint site

Updated: May 5, 2010

Applies To: Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) 2.0

In this step, we access the SharePoint site that is hosted in the Contoso domain from a client computer in the Fabrikam domain. We attempt to:

  1. Log on to the FABRIKAMSRV02 computer as FABRIKAM\frankm with "demo!23" as the user password.

  2. Open Internet Explorer, and then browse to https://docs.contoso.com.

  3. The first thing you will see is the Contoso Server Sign-in page with the drop-down list of Identity Providers. This step is called Home Real Discovery. From the drop-down list, choose Fabrikam Identity Provider, and then click Continue to Sign In.

  4. After you select the button, you navigate to the Fabrikam federation server sign-in pages, where the Frank will be authenticated using Windows Integrated Authentication. Frank will not be prompted for credentials.

  5. After Frank is authenticated, he will be redirected back to the Contoso STS sign-in pages. Wehn the Contoso STS verifies that Frank is indeed from Fabrikam, he will be further redirected to the SharePoint server and have visitor access to the site.

    noteNote
    Accessing a document that is present at the SharePoint site directly from Microsoft Office Word requires Microsoft Office Service Pack 2 (SP2) and Windows Vista® SP2. Also, for Group Policy changes to take effect from the changes we made in the previous step, restart the FABRIKAMCLT01 VM before you continue with this step.

  1. noteNote
    Accessing a document that is present at a federated SharePoint site directly from Microsoft Office Word requires Microsoft Office Service Pack 2 (SP2) and KB969413.

    Log on to the FABRIKAMSRV02 computer as user "frankm" with "demo!23" as the user password.

  2. Open Microsoft Office Word.

  3. Click the Word Office button, and then click Open.

  4. Type the URL of the document that is located on the SharePoint site as follows:
    https://docs.contoso.com/Docs/Documents/Contoso%20-%20Statement%20of%20General%20Terms.docx

  5. You should see the same browser experience that you saw when accessing the SharePoint site using Internet Explorer. After you select your identity provider, you will be authenticated and the document will be downloaded directly from the federate SharePoint site.
