Can anyone give me some detailed information on how to integrate R5 into a Single Sign on with Active Directory (Win2k)? Pitfalls appriciated as well.

I see some gina.dll references on the Lotus site, but no specifics.

normaly this is managed by the Client installation procedure (if you like to have this dangerous feature :-).

Where do you have this Lotus gina.dll link?

Please define "dangerous procedure" for me, as I'm more of the 2000 guy than the Notes guy.

As far as the link, most of them are obscure references to the gina such as

not all Notes users are NT domain users, and further, those that are on NT workstations or Windows 2000 Professional can make use of Notes single sign-on through the GINA (Graphical Interface Network Authentication) service provided by Windows NT/2000.

thank you for the link.

My dangerous experiance was in early NT4.0 period. I enabled NT logon for Notes together with BenianVines logon exit. After a while I had to reinstall my workstation from scratch. Since than I do not use this Notes NT feature.

On other hand I have managed to logon as web user to Domino without physicaly using a names.nsf person document. It was possible with authenthicating web user trough DSAP using WinNT LogonUserA function call. The same is also posible without DSAPI but with Domino DirectoryAssistance against a LDAP authentication instace. Like Exchange LDAP frontend. But in my company do the Exchange people not allow LDAP for security reasons. Or perhaps to restrict WinNT authentication to IIS.

For this DSAPI sources look at here:

Instead of UNIX authentication use your Windows methods.
