Authentication Nightmare

Question asked by jpv on Oct 22, 2009
Latest reply on Oct 22, 2009 by jpv
I have been trying to configure Alfresco authentication against our Active Directory for more than a month now without any luck.  I have followed every conflicting instruction out there and re-installed Alfresco at least 30 times on 6 different servers on Windows 2K3, XP, Ubuntu and Solaris.  I used Alfresco 3.2 CE and 3.2 nightly 2009-09-29.  It does not seem possible to have everything working while authenticating against AD.

If I configure ntlm only then everything work but no AD authentication.

If I configure passthrough only then Alfresco and Share work, but VTI does not and this only works on Windows.

If I configure LDAP with no SSO then Alfresco works, my AD users are synchronised but no Share and no VTI.

If I enable NTLM SSO and LDAP SSO then Alfresco and Share works but no VTI
Is this related to this issue? https://issues.alfresco.com/jira/browse/ALFCOM-3234

If I configure ntlm, passthrough and ldap then I still only get Alfresco working.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
