Summary: 

I am being required to use Windows Authentication only for a particular DNN but when using Windows Auth, although I _can_ log into DNN as any of my Windows users, I can't get any of them to be admins, can't log out (does nothing), and see no indication of the currently logged-in users' identity. Also, when using the AD Auth Extension, I have all the same issues _plus_ new users are not created in the DB on init. I don't care about the logout link not working or having an indication of who you're logged in as, but I need to be able to make one of the users an admin.

High-Level "What I've Tried" Steps: 

  • Created two new Windows users, one dnn_admin, and one dnn_user
  • Disabled every Auth mode for the DNN site in IIS, except for Windows Auth
    • ^ This step seems to have automatically modified my web.config to reflect what I need
  • Restart IIS, navigate to the site and log in
  • At this point, I AM able to log in as both dnn_admin and dnn_user, note neither user has host or admin privileges, just subscriber
  • New users with the same names as above are automatically added to the DB
  • Update DNN DB manually, making IsSuperUser = 1 for dnn_admin 
    • ^ Have to do this manually as I can no longer log in as an admin to make this change using the admin web UI
  • Try logging in again as dnn_admin but still no host or admin privileges... This the main problem. I need the dnn_admin user to actually _be_ an admin! 
  • Note the logout link doesn't work and there's no account link or indication of who you're logged in as

Active Directory Extension Results:

I've also tried installing the AD for DNN plugin (https://dnnauthad.codeplex.com) and though it installs successfully and lets me log in, there are several show-stopping issues:

  • New users are not created on init
  • I can't get any logged-in user to have host / admin priveleges
  • Again, the logout link doesn't work and there's no account link or indication of who you're logged in as

Thanks for taking the time! ~Jordan
