  1. Hi,
    your blog is good for beginners those who want to know about sitecore.I am getting following error when i try to connect with sitecore 'master' database.

    The type 'System.Configuration.Provider.ProviderCollection' is defined in an assembly that is not referenced. You must add a reference to assembly 'System.Configuration, Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a'.

How to enable Single Sign On in Sitecore with Active Directory Users and Roles

(Assuming that reader has knowledge on Single Sign On)

Single sign on functionality needs the site not to be in anonymous authentication. In IIS, Basic or Windows authentication should be enabled.
How to enable windows authentication in IIS?
Single sign on functionality comes along with Active Directory Module from Sitecore. You can get the latest version from SDN. This module integrates AD to the Sitecore instance. This module needs the LDAP path and few provider configuration settings in web.config file.
SDN Link: http://sdn.sitecore.net/Products/AD/Download.aspx
This module installs LDAP dll, configuration and few aspx pages. Once installed, we get the LDAP login page under /website/Sitecore/admin/ldaplogin.aspx. Along with that, we will be having few more roles in Sitecore.
