      Description

      An default install of Alfresco Community 5.0d is failing to accept connections from Mobile clients (and CMIS open workbench)

      The install has been configured with passthru authentication and NTLM

      The error log (when DEBUG in CMIS in ./tomcat/webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/classes/log4j.properties is enabled) shows...
      2015-09-07 13:10:03,836 DEBUG [org.alfresco.web.app.servlet.NTLMAuthenticationFilter] [http-apr-8080-exec-2] NTLM blob not handled, redirecting to login page.
      2015-09-07 13:10:03,837 DEBUG [org.alfresco.web.app.servlet.NTLMAuthenticationFilter] [http-apr-8080-exec-2] restartLoginChallenge

      The authentication section from alfresco-global.properties is....
      authentication.chain=passthru1:passthru,alfrescoNtlm1:alfrescoNtlm
      ntlm.authentication.sso.enabled=true
      passthru.authentication.useLocalServer=false
      passthru.authentication.domain=
      passthru.authentication.servers=JONNO
      jonno-ad01.jonno.org,jonno-ad01.jonno.org
      passthru.authentication.authenticateCIFS=true
      passthru.authentication.guestAccess=false
      passthru.authentication.protocolOrder=TCPIP,NETBIOS
      passthru.authentication.defaultAdministratorUserNames=jon,administrator
      alfresco.authentication.authenticateCIFS=false

      Note
      I have tested this against default installs of Community 5.0c - and the authentication is successful
      My test was

      • download the installer
      • run accepting the defaults
      • update alfresco-global.properties with the settings above
      • update share-config-custom.xml - and uncomment the SSO section
      • connect to share with browser using an AD user account - success in all cases
      • connect to repository with iPad client (version 2.1.2) - success with 5.0c - fail for 5.0d
      • connect with opencmis workbench - success with 5.0c - fail for 5.0d

      NOTE: this also failed with the early release of 5.1 (20150828-EA)
