RE: a question about the access file syntax: username aliases

Seems you are using the wrong syntax for the authz file, you log on with the sAMAccountName, so this would be the users to authorize :

Here is an example of how I did it, note that I have founf it nescessary to explicitly deny access to all users not in the group ( the ~ construct), as we will not even allow read access for users not in the group. :

csvn = rw
@admin = rw

admin = z1208fc,z5131ph,et4818,et2889,z1920oj,et4262
mfe = et1038

* = r

@pmd = rw
~pmd =

@mfe = rw
~mfe =

Subject: a question about the access file syntax: username aliases

Hi, Subversion developers
I am now using subversion 1.5 + Http 2.2.9 with LDAP authentication, it works fine.
But now, I want to do per-directory access control with LDAP authentication which someone can read and write in the special directories, others can only read them. and it cannot work with my setting: http.conf + authz.
I notice there is a file syntax: aliases in authz file, but I wandered whether my setting is correct.
Could you give me some help?
