Can we use Custom Directory and AD together in a single system?

Not quite.  You can do this on a Single QVS but you would need a seperate Web Server for each Authentication type.

You would have to use DMS authorisation which supports both Custom and AD.

Dave, do you know if there is a reason why they can't both work on a single webserver? Are there any security considerations? It used to work back in QV9

I am not sure what Dave is talking about will work either. You can't use any other Directory Service with Custom Directory. This is the only time QVS authenticates the users and it does it throught an XML file that the directory service creates. This has always been the case with Custom users all the way back to version 4.

Re: Custom Directory and AD together

I'll bow to your knowledge here Bill.  I must admit I hardly use Custom Directory as it doesn't scale; it's only really suitable for small Proof of Concepts.  I'm more likely to use HTTP Header or WebTicketing for custom authentication.

Daniel - ignoring that I might have got this one wrong generally you can only have one authentication type per Web Server because it uses a centralised config file.

Dave, I'm not sure if it was by design or by omission, but QV9 did allow you to work with AD and custom users using a single webserver, we had it set like that in a customer's test server and had to change it with QV10.

Re: Custom Directory and AD together

Daniel,

You are correct. There was a bug that would allow it to work. (offen wondered why this wasn't turned into a feature)
