Yes, it is hanging off the root.

Here's the httpd.conf snippet (with password obscured).

<Location "/svn/">
    AllowOverride None
    order allow,deny
    allow from all

    DAV svn
    SVNParentPath /usr/remote/bu1/Data/COMPUTER/DATABASE/Development

    AuthName "Subversion"
    AuthType Kerberos

    KrbMethodNegotiate on
    KrbAuthoritative off
    Krb5Keytab /etc/krb5.keytab
    KrbVerifyKDC off

    AuthLDAPUrl "ldap://uinen
    AuthLDAPBindPassword "password"
    Require group cn=IT,ou=KenmoreCampus,ou=University,dc=middleearth,dc=prv

It works with no problems using local repository! I'm mounting the
share via: mount_smbfs -u www -g wheel //jtaylor@bu1/data /usr/remote/bu1

And here's my nsmb.conf (with password obscured):



# use persistent password cache for user
