Hi All,
     We are currently in the process of migrating our Version management
from VSS to SVN. I was trying to setup the windows domain authentication for
SVN and followed all the steps mentioned at
http://www.subversionary.org/sspidomainauth. But when i try to access the
repository i get an Authenticantion denied error. I have given the info from
apache error.log below. We have installed apache 2.0.55 and SVN 1.2.3.

The entry i have in apache conf file is:

<Location "/test">
    dav svn
    SVNPath "d:/svntest"

    # our user authentication policy
    AuthName "SVN Server"
    AuthType SSPI
    SSPIAuth On
    SSPIAuthoritative On
    SSPIDomain nazcasolutions
    SSPIOfferBasic on #let non-IE clients authenticate
    #SSPIOmitDomain On # keep domain name in userid string
                       # passed down to mod_authz_svn
    Require valid-user # A Require directive may? prevent userid
                        # strings from being passed down to mod_authz_svn

    # our access control policy enforced by mod_authz_svn
    AuthzSVNAccessFile "d:/svndav/svnaccess.conf"


The entry i have in svnaccess.conf file is:

Deepak.B = rw
The error i get in error.log is:

I also tried using different combinations of lower and upper cases for
username and domain. But none of them worked.
Can someone please help me with a resolution?

Thanks and Regards,

Deepak Balasubramaniam
