LDAP + svn server via SMB mount ??


Dear all,

Firstly, I would like to know if it's possible. Secondly, how do I do it?

I want to have a svn server (box A), however the files are stored on another box (box B, windows server). The users of the svn server will be auth via LDAP. I already have the LDAP setup and users can login. I can also mount the directory on box B that has the files. However, this is mounted by a single user, which doesn't sound like a good idea.
I unfortunately only have admin access to the svn server box.

Thank you for any help.

Paul

PS Just to make this a little more fun the svn will be served via apache, https.

these things aren't really related. within an SVN server, the files are owned by the svn server user, not individuals, so generally what you have sounds fine to me, especially if you are interfacing with svn via apache, that's even easier. What are these LDAP users even for? if your svn clients authenticate to Apache via those accounts, then all the better, but the users should have no reason to log into the server at shell level.
