Description Oliver B. Nelson 2008-12-10 02:17:44 UTC
During redeployment of JEE applications which use jCIFS on IBM WebSphere Application Server the following error occurs:

Miscellaneous data: Attribute "NtlmHttpChal" is declared to be serializable but
is found to generate exception "java.io.NotSerializableException" with message
"jcifs.UniAddress". Fix the application so that  the attribute "NtlmHttpChal"
is correctly serializable at runtime.

Looking further into the jCIFS sourcecode the class "jcifs.UniAddress" is indeed the troublemaker. It should be declared transient if it is not serializable as the code suggests.
