Subject Re: Trouble getting plugin installed on sharepoint 2010
Date Fri, 12 Oct 2012 21:18:23 GMT
The IIS setup on the ec2 instance has to be correct.  I've not tried
SharePoint on ec2, so I don't know what the setup looks like, but it
needs to be as follows:

- SharePoint pages protected with NTLM security, or nothing (not basic
auth or Kerberos)
- You have to enable the ability to execute asmx plugins (there's a
setting for execution if I recall correctly)

You can learn a little more about the above perhaps by browsing to the
site using IE from a different unrelated domain, and noting the login
you have to go through.  Or, you can do packet captures with a tool
like Wireshark to figure out what authentication IE is using.  If you
install SharePoint from the SharePoint disk, it would all be properly
set up automatically, but who knows how Amazon has it by default, so
it is worth a check.

The 401 error, however, could also be due to a more likely problem,
which is that the machine name Amazon gives you may not be enough; you
may need to use a fully qualified name.  Or, even worse, there may
actually be an active directory domain that the machine is joined to,
in which case you'd want to use that.  You should also try a
fully-qualified version of the domain, if there is one.

If this seems challenging to you, welcome to the world of Windows
authentication.  But I should reassure you that so far everyone has
figured it out eventually.
