Problems configuring CIFS: Null CIFS logon allowed

Question asked by johang on Jun 12, 2009

I've struggled with this problem for a couple of days now and I can't see to get this to work.

I've installed (I couldn't seem to get Alfresco-Labs-3Stable-Linux-x86-Install to work) on Ubuntu 8.04LTS. I think this is Labs 3d. I've installed the module alfresco-crowd-security and configured Alfresco to use Crowd for authentication. I got this part working nicely and I can login to /alfresco and /alfresco/webdav.

I'm however experiencing problems configuring CIFS. I get the following message in alfresco.log:
11:19:21,210 DEBUG [org.alfresco.smb.protocol.auth] Null CIFS logon allowed
11:19:21,222 DEBUG [org.alfresco.smb.protocol.auth]   No PassthruDetails for T8

11:19:44,227 DEBUG [org.alfresco.smb.protocol.auth]   No PassthruDetails for T12

I've googled this issue and found some similar issues but this one is almost the same: I've tried the solution but it didn't work.

My file-servers.xml looks like this:

<alfresco-config area="file-servers">

        <config evaluator="string-compare" condition="CIFS Server" replace="true">
                <serverEnable enabled="true"/>
                <host name="${cifs.localname}A" domain="${cifs.domain}"/>
                <comment>Alfresco CIFS Server</comment>
                <tcpipSMB platforms="linux,solaris,macosx"/>
                <netBIOSSMB platforms="linux,solaris,macosx"/>
                <!– CIFS authentication –>
                <authenticator type="passthru">
                <sessionDebug flags="Negotiate,Notify,Socket,Tree,Errors,State"/>

        <config evaluator="string-compare" condition="Filesystems">

                        <filesystem name="Alfresco">

                        <!– Add a URL file to each folder that links back to the web client –>

                        <!– Mark locked files as offline –>

         <avmfilesystem name="AVM">
            <virtualView stores="site,staging,author" />


        <config evaluator="string-compare" condition="Filesystem Security">
                <authenticator type="passthru">
</alfresco-config> is the Crowd Server

I don't think this issue is related to the alfresco-crowd-security module but rather a configuration issue. When I run 'smbclient -U admin \\localhost\alfresco' from the alfresco-server I get: session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE and I see Null CIFS logon allowed etc in the log-file.

I've tried several possible configuration-options but still no solution. I'm getting pretty desperate and running out of ideas so any hints are appreciated.
