ALF 3.4c, LR 6.0.5, & AD integration

Question asked by excitedbynoise on Feb 11, 2011
I know that it is not currently supported, but I'm trying to work around and get the DocLib portlet working under Liferay 6.0.5.

I had configured the authentication chain to passthru to my AD server and sync groups and users from LDAP. Does having the external authenticator with the others cause an issue?

This is what I have:
authentication.chain=alfrescoNtlm1:alfrescoNtlm,external1:external,passthu1:passthru,ldap1:ldap
external.authentication.proxyUserName=

Also, the error I am throwing is:
at org.springframework.web.servlet.DispatcherServlet.render(DispatcherSe
rvlet.java:1060)
erServlet.java:798)
rServlet.java:716)

The user names are the same, although in Alfresco I have people logging in using first.last and in Liferay it's email address.
