Configure CVS to use winbind for authentication?
Posted on 2003-03-27
I currently have two sites accessing my Samba server. One site is in a Win2K domain, and they authenticate using winbind - this allows their domain username and password to work. The second site is not in the domain, so they are using smb encrypted passwords (smbpasswd file). Winbind is configured to check the files first, and then go to the domain second.
I am looking to deploy CVS to these two sites on the same server, and would like to try to use the same authentication methods. It seems that CVS only wants to use the /etc/passwd file (besides rhosts, ssh, etc). This means setting extra passwords for each user (something I avoided doing for Samba).
Is there any way that I can configure CVS to use winbind or smbpasswd for authentication?
The server is RedHat 8.0, cvs-1.11.2-5, and the clients are using WinCvs or TortoiseCVS.
