Sample: AdventureWorks2000 Single Sign-On Metadata

SharePoint 2007

Following is the complete XML for the AdventureWorks2000 sample described in this section. This metadata demonstrates the use of single sign-on (SSO) to connect to the AdventureWorks SQL Server 2000 database.

NoteNote:

The only difference between the AdventureWorks2000 single sign-on Sample XML and the AdventureWorks2000 PassThrough sample XML is in the metadata for the LobSystemInstance object. The rest of the metadata is identical.

In the LobSystemInstance metadata, replace the name of the computer running SQL Server that hosts the AdventureWorks2000 database in the Rdb Connection Source property accordingly. If you use a SQL Server instance, use the format, SQLServer\Instance. For detailed instructions about how to use this sample, see AdventureWorks SQL Server 2000 Sample.
