    • AFP Authentication against LDAP / Active Directory

      Hello everybody,

      My Problem is that I'm not able to authenticate at AFP Shares against ldap (active Directory).

      OVM is joined correctly to the active Directory Domain. I can grant AD Users and Groups in ACLs and Privileges of Shared Folders.
      Also I can athenticate at AFP with local users (e.g. admin). But when I use an AD Account which has Access rights in ACLs and in Privileges I always get a wrong user or Password error on my Mac.

      I have already linked the authentication backends of Netatalk to use PAM authentication: -> -> ->

      This is described here:…ation.html#authentication

      When I try to authenticate with an AD User the following line is logged in the Authentication Protocol:
      Apr 19 17:27:38 CENTRAL-NEU afpd[17147]: pam_unix(netatalk:auth): authentication failure; logname= uid=0 euid=0 tty=afpd ruser= rhost=central.local user=maria.musterfrau

      Is there somone out there who can help me to get this working?

      Many thanks in advance for your help!!
