Desktop Actions didn't work in Labs 3 B on Linux or Windows, so I installed Community 2.1 on a CentOS 4.6 Linux server.

I got it working by following the JAAS section of the Enterprise Security and Authentication Configuration WIKI, and configuring the CIFS passthru authenticator described in the CIFS Server Authentication WIKI (The only option I use is the Server option).

LDAP isn't a good solution becuase you can't use your normal account name…you have to use a distinguished name (DN).

NTLM worked Ok for the web interface, but I couldn't get it to work with CIFS (JLAN-46?).

The problem with the Configuring the CIFS and web servers for Kerberos/AD integration WIKI is:

1. The keytab is optional and over-complicates things
2. The Kerberos authentication web filter, in web.xml, is not available in Community 2.1
