Sorry for that, I will explain the context...

We have a Tomcat application server and we want windows XP users to be
logging in with jcifs (for SSO using NTLMv1).

So we restricted access from users to log on computers. The computer account
(for tomcat jcifs server) in the active directory must be use to permit
users to access the web application.

> Hi,
> I have a Windows Domain with a policy restricting which users can log on to which server.  I am using jCIFS 1.3.1.
> I tried to use jcifs.netbios.hostname property to set the correct hostname for JCIFS server, create the computer object in the active directory.
> My user is allowed to log on his computer and the jcifs server (jcifs.netbios.hostname).
> The jcifs.netbios.hostname doesn't seem to work, I saw on the security event log of the active directory that the workstation name is called by the ip address not by the jcifs hostname(jcifs.netbios.hostname).
> Here is my error :
> Logon failure: user not allowed to log on to this computer
> Workstation Name : \\TheIpAddress
> Note that the hostname by jcifs is resolved by DNS and the reverse lookup
> is working too.
> My configuration is like this :
> -Djcifs.smb.lmCompatibility=1 (This parameter is static, must be initiate
> at the JVM startup)
> jcifs.smb.client.useExtendedSecurity=false
> jcifs.smb.client.username=user
> jcifs.smb.client.password=password
> jcifs.resolveOrder=DNS
> jcifs.http.domainController=mydomain.com
> jcifs.util.loglevel=9
> jcifs.netbios.hostname=myhostname
> Is there un bug that you have already seen, what do you suggest ?
