RE: RE: Windows svn/tortoise clients with an Apache 2.0.54/AuthenNTLM/svn 1.2.1/Linux server

For your information, we're using mod_ldap with Apache on a Suse 9.1 server in a Windows domain and Active Directory authentication without problems. We had a problem with the openldap code crashing on invalid passwords, but that was solved by upgrading to the latest version of openldap ( 2.2.27 ).
This seems be to a nice and stable solution. Currently we have some 30 userson Subversion, but our end goal is some 250, and I don't expect problems with the LDAP / AD part.

The site is unfortunately using an active directory environment (leave the"l" out of ldap :)
They are using Apache2-AuthenNTLM-0.02 I tried a couple of other, much older non perl ntlm modules, but they dowork in a webbrowser session itself (without import/export possibilities ofcourse), but they don't work at all with the cvs client.

I have two ideas...
1) - What version of the mod_ntlm module are you running?  There was a bugin it at one time that was fixed (seehttp://search.cpan.org/src/SPEEVES/Apache2-AuthenNTLM-0.01/Changes underchanges for 2.09)
2) - If you really have that many users, have you considered using LDAPinstead?  I'm no genius, but my perception is that the LDAP is a bit morerobust and mature and may handle the user functionality better.

I tried to authenticate two different subversion clients via an apache ntlmmechanism since we will be using quite a large number of users.The Apache::AuthenNTLM authentication works fine except when people try todo a commit. Whenever somebody tries to do that the svn (tortoise) clientcomes up with a login screen. Whatever you fill in it will keep on poppingup and you simply can't commit. On the linux server you see the following inapaches error_log:
[error] SMB Server connection not open in state 3 for/!svn/act/0c1afd43-b19c-b146-9762-2deb08712d53
If I use the standard svn:\\ instead of http:// everything is fine,including a commit action (but unfortunately svnserve does not know how tohandle NTLM authentication and that would mean a lot of extra usermanagement).
Has somebody got an idea?
