Hi, I had the same problem and I think everyone with Win 2003 DC's using
the default jcifs configuration will too!

There is an entry in the jcifs FAQ but not obvious - you need to enable
preauthentication. I did this and it works great, but needs a dummy
domain account.

An alternative workaround, to change the timeout, has appeared on the
mailing list in the past - it works, but isn't recommended. Good luck!

userwith 2003 domain controller




My organization is moving domain controllers to Win 2003 platform (from
2000). As a part of the effort we were suppose to test jCIFS as well to
in-sure it's proper work with 2003. Our test are failing with the next


Only the first user can successfully authenticate - starting from the
second attempt the authentication fails with "NtlmHttpFilter:
<domain>\<user_name>: 0xC0000022: jcifs.smb.SmbAuthException: Access is
denied." and Authentication Pop-Up window appears in IE.


Again, just to clarify for 2000 it works fine.


We are using jCIFS 1.2.6 version  / BEA WLS 8.1 sp4 on UNIX-HP Itanium


The jCIFS Filter is setuped the next way:


        <param-value><DOMAIN CONTROLLER IP></param-value>


Any help / suggestion / workaround will be more then appreciated;


Thank U in advance;
