PSERVER AUTHENTICATION AGAINST ACTIVE DIRECTORY

PSERVER AUTHENTICATION AGAINST ACTIVE DIRECTORY

PSERVER AUTHENTICATION AGAINST ACTIVE DIRECTORY

(OP)
I have CVS installed on an RHEL 4 box.   The box has been configured using Winbind to authenticate users against an Active Directory domain.    I am able to login to the Linux box using the Active Directory usernames and passwords, no problem.

When I try to connect through PServer using a local username/password (in the /etc/password file), it works fine.   If I try to login using an Active Directory account, authentication fails.

It recognizes the username, but isn't liking the password.  

Can anyone help?

thanks!

RE: PSERVER AUTHENTICATION AGAINST ACTIVE DIRECTORY

Have you looked at using the sspi protocol rather than the pserver one? We use that together with samab and winbind so all cvs user names and passwords are dealt with by the active directory of the domain.
I think that if you have winbind working for the logins on "the box" it should be simple to get sspi working as well.
