I've searched for answers to this problem and have yet to see anyone that is experiencing what I am right now.

I have community 3.2r2 setup to use kerberos authentication for CIFS. 

I have the configuration all set from what I can tell, after some back and forth we finally got the CIFS principal and keytabs set correctly so that I get this in the log when I start alfresco.

14:43:36,906 DEBUG [org.alfresco.smb.protocol.auth] Logged on using principal CIFS/
14:43:36,906 DEBUG [org.alfresco.smb.protocol.auth] Enabling mechTypes :-
14:43:36,906 DEBUG [org.alfresco.smb.protocol.auth]   Kerberos5
14:43:36,906 DEBUG [org.alfresco.smb.protocol.auth]   MS-Kerberos5

14:43:36,911 INFO  [org.alfresco.fileserver] CIFS server started

So that tells me that CIFS is started and that the kerberos authentication is ready to go.

Well when I try to authenticate I get only this in the log:

14:46:54,009 DEBUG [org.alfresco.smb.protocol.auth] Using Write transaction

I tried to trace the problem down and added some additional debugging statements into the class and finally got it down to this error. 
Attempt to use non SSO-enabled authentication component for SSO

This is thrown on line 458 of

I'm at a loss as to what to try next.  Does anyone have any ideas?
