Alfresco & Kerberos

Question asked by anth on Jan 25, 2011
Can someone explain why configuring Kerberos based authentication for CIFS (or HTTP really) requires Alfresco to have a "User" account created in Active directory? 

When setting up a Samba/Cifs server with Kerberos authentication, you add the server to the Domain which creates a "Machine" account - but there is no requirement for a "user" account to be set up.  Why does Alfresco require user accounts?

Thanks
Anthony
