RE: Authentication With Samba

Hi Brad, thanks for the reply.
 
My company already have SAMBA up and running and all the company employees based down stairs in my building are using it, although they are on Windows machines, SAMBA is used to bridge the Linux and Windows servers - well, thats what I think its there for - i'm not an admin guy :).
 
I already have subversion setup in my office, and we are using Windows domain authentication (we have a different setup to downstairs) through Apache to get into Subversion.

        Tryst,
            Yes and its far easier than it sounds. The only issue I have is that users have to enter in the fully qualified domain user name such as "DOMAIN\USER". That depends on your domain scoping though. But it works fine other than that. I have the authentication hooked up through PAM. Apache can authenticate with PAM through mod_auth_pam.
        
        Get your system authenticating first:
        http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Adding_a_Samba_Server_into_an_existing_AD_Domain
        
        And then use mod_auth_pam to get apache authenticating. Basically, just don't specify a password file.

                Hi all,
                 
                I am about to roll out Subversion across my company and have just realised that the company users use SAMBA (http://us1.samba.org/samba/) for its login/authentication process.
                 
                This isn;t exactly Windows domain authentication, so was wondering if I would be able to let Subversion use Apache to pickup the users SAMBA login credentials so that they can automatically login (like Windows Domain Authentication works).
                 
                Is this at all possible?
                 
                Thanks
