Description Tom Maher 2008-01-04 19:08:35 UTC
Contrary to the manpage, the smbcacls utility doesn't actually honor the '-k' flag to do kerberos authentication to a share.  This patch propagates the request for kerberos authentication to the actual call to cli_full_connection().

This bug (and the patch) was submitted over two years ago to the samba-technical list by Nick Williams, but doesn't appear to have ever made it into the repository.  See


for the original mail.
