ALfresco 3.2 Passthru and Account duplication

Question asked by pbkoob on Jul 10, 2009

I am using PassThru authentication
authentication.chain=passthru1:passthru
going through the local server
passthru.authentication.useLocalServer=true
which is a member of the AD Domain.

It is setup (with no extra specifications) so I can authenticate as user or as user@domain.com.

If I authenticate both ways in Alfresco, two different accounts will be created.  One for user and the other for user@domain.com.

It occurs to me that I could probably create a third account domain\user.

Is there a config in Alfresco I can set to keep this from happening or should try a different authentication schema?

I think ldap could keep this from happening, but I want to be able to use CIFS too so ldap is out of the picture.
