Hi All

I'm installing alfresco 1.0 rc1 over tomcat 5.5. My goal is the capability to log in alfresco using users/pass from the active directory that is on the same lan.

First, I installed samba 3, and joined the machine into the domain. In the smb.conf file there are the directives:
security = ads
realm = DOMAIN.NAME

and when I run:
net ads join -U admin

the machine joined the domain succesfully as I can see it from the "PDC" as an ordinary machine.

In the next step, I changed file-server.xml to look like this:

      <host name="${localname}_X" domain="DOMAIN"  />

But I get these complaints in catalina.out

08:50:48,336 ERROR [smb.protocol.netbios] Unknown OpCode 0x8

08:50:48,338 ERROR [smb.protocol.netbios] Unknown OpCode 0x8
08:50:48,338 ERROR [smb.protocol.netbios] Unknown OpCode 0x8


My only goal is do the login process with the users of the ADS, where can I change the "user's database" to fetch it from the ADS ?

Any suggestions ? thanks!
