Hello,

I was wondering if its possible to have users in a domain to
authenticate against an external datastore - ie. not active directory.
The client has a centralized security system that they would like all
systems and servers to use. This same repository will also provide
service that need to enforced on the server. If these type of things
are feasible, I would greatly appreciate any suggestions on how we can
learn more about doing this.

Also, are there any potential disadvantages to do this?

Thanks in advance.
Tom

In short... No... If the customer is wanting to use a centralized management
system, take a look at the Microsoft Identity Integration Server. It is our
stab at a single singon world...
