Alfresco Kerberos and Linux

Hi all,

I'll admit, I'm very very new to the world of Alfresco and am having some trouble getting it installed and working.

We have a Linux authentication server, which uses both Kerberos and LDAP to handle user details. LDAP holds the user info, and Kerberos does the user authentication. There is NO Active Directory, this is a completely *NIX network. Having read through the Authentication Subsystems documentation on the wiki, I find myself utterly baffled. The documentation seems to only address AD Kerberos systems, which as I have previously stated, we do not have. Can anyone give me some pointers on this? I have tried adding Kerberos to the authentication chain and have modified the kerberos-authentication.properties file to read

kerberos.authentication.realm=SDEV.LOCAL
kerberos.authentication.user.configEntryName=Alfresco
kerberos.authentication.defaultAdministratorUserNames=admin,Administrator
kerberos.authentication.cifs.configEntryName=AlfrescoCIFS
kerberos.authentication.cifs.password=xxxxxx
kerberos.authentication.authenticateCIFS=false

Upon trying this, however, I received the following error:

javax.faces.FacesException: Error calling action method of component with id loginForm:submit
caused by:
javax.faces.el.EvaluationException: Exception while invoking expression #{LoginBean.login}
caused by:
java.lang.SecurityException: Unable to locate a login configuration
caused by:
java.io.IOException: Unable to locate a login configuration

I am almost certain that I have missed some big step out somewhere, but I really can't think of where to start.

Any help that anyone may be able to offer would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Troy.
