Management Web Parts
The Management Web Parts and controls handle the channel configuration, provide the ability to update specific product information, enable the selection of various properties from the Commerce Server 2009 Core Systems, and to marshal data calls to Commerce Server 2009 and return product information.
We do not recommend using NTLM authentication in the extended zone your shoppers will use because some of the Default site functionality that requires a shopper log in will not function correctly when logging in under NTLM. This includes functions such as registration, profile management, login and logout, to name a few. This occurs because of a synchronization limitation of profile information between the Windows account, Commerce Server 2009, and SharePoint. However, primary browsing, shopping, and checkout functions are not affected.
