CIFS with Passthru Authentication

Question asked by hm on Jul 6, 2006

I configured CIFS (file-servers.xml) to use passthru authentication using the following:

<authenticator type="passthru"><Server></Server></authenticator>

I have followed the instructions in alfresco WIKI to setup NTLM passthru by modifying web.xml and ntlm-ahtentication-service.xml, NTLM passthru authentication works fine via the web-client but not via CIFS.

On startup CIFS configuration throws the following error message.

23:56:38,846 ERROR [alfresco.smb.protocol] File server configuration error, Wrong authentication setup for passthru authenticator
org.alfresco.error.AlfrescoRuntimeException: Wrong authentication setup for passthru authenticator
        at org.alfresco.filesys.server.config.ServerConfiguration.processSecurityConfig(
        at org.alfresco.filesys.server.config.ServerConfiguration.init(

Is this a known problem or am I doing something wrong?
