Batch LDAP sync + alfrescontlm possible?

Question asked by dminstrel on Dec 7, 2010
Hello,

like many, we're struggling with making CIFS authentication work with Kerberos on 3.3g. We've run into a wall and I've scoured the web for options.

I'm intrigued by slide 28 of this presentation: http://www.slideshare.net/thierry_koscielniak/presentation-jasig-2010. They've setup Alfresco to receive a daily LDAP sync. I wonder, is it possible to do a daily LDAP sync of users/passwords to Alfresco and then use alfrescontlm for CIFS authentication? This would give us the additional security of NTLM v2. In the darkest of moments, I've considered just enabling passthru with NTLM v1, but forum threads like this: http://serverfault.com/questions/47827/implications-of-allowing-windows-clients-to-use-ntlmv1 convince me to find a better way.

Thanks,
