Re: Desperate for Podcast Producer 2 Authentication



Thank you! I found a solution yesterday. In the past I edited pcastserverd.plist and removed MD5-Digest Authentication. This fix is also stated in the Podcast Producer documentation. However the documentation is not updated yet. It has a new location. Below is from a great Apple tech who helped me out! Thank you!

The new location is:

{Shared Library}/Server/cluster_preferences.plist

The default array is:
	<key>http_auth_type</key>
	<array>
		<string>basic</string>
		<string>digest</string>
		<string>kerberos</string>
	</array>

Remove digest from the list.

We'll get the documentation updated.

Steven,
Not sure if this is your issue but I had a similar issue and had to switch away from our openldap because I could not get the schema added and populated.
Check to see if your open directory stores UUID numbers for each user NOT just the normal unix UID number. All pcp code resolves usernames to UUID numbers and then does the lookup. This is not only a matter of having either the AD or OD schema loaded in the OpenLdap server but also populating the UUID information.
You can test to see if authentication will work by using terminal to run /usr/libexec/chkpasswd <shortusername> where <shortusername> is replaced with a known working username. You can check and see if uuid's are being returned using
/usr/bin/dsmemberutil getuuid -U <shortusername>


I hope this helps.

Greetings! I have been having problems having my external OpenLDAP users authenticating into the the Podcast Capture application. Below are some more specifics of my setup. If you any ideas at all I'd love to hear them. Anything to point me in the right direction would be excellent! Here is the setup (same as in the past with PcP1)
PcP Server Hosts:
Open Directory
Podcast Producer
NFS
xGrid
It is connected to our OpenLDAP directory servers so external users can authenticate. In the past I've had to modify pcastserverd.plist to not use digest authentication for this to work. I even had to do this on 10.5.6 and later. I'm not sure why this was since 10.5.6+ allowed all three authentication methods. I'm guessing something weird with our LDAP setup. With the new setup:
I've tried doing the exact same thing. I can process jobs perfect as local OpenDirectory users and everything works, but the actual problem is I can't get any of my OpenLDAP accounts to authenticate. They can authenticate to SSH and AFP, but no Podcast Producer. :-(
I also noticed this in the logs when I try to authenticate. This shows up in the Podcast Producer Application log:
