The Pass-through subsystem supports SSO, CIFS, and password authentication against a Windows domain server using the NTLM v1 protocol. Many prefer Kerberos for its enhanced security and you could consider it as an alternative.
Append an instance of passthru to the authentication
Name the instance passthru1, and declare it by changing the authentication.chain property in as follows:
alfresco.authentication.authenticateCIFS=falseNote: Functions such as NTLM SSO and CIFS authentication can only be targeted at a single subsystem instance in the authentication chain. This is a restriction imposed by the authentication protocols themselves. For this reason, Alfresco targets these ‘direct’ authentication functions at the first member of the authentication chain that has them enabled. By disabling CIFS in alfinst earlier, passthru1 has a chance to handle CIFS authentication for its larger user base. SSO is also left disabled in alfinst, which means that you can enable it in passthru1.
Edit the ldap.authentication.active property in the
alfresco-global.properties file as follows:
