By default the /Library/Preferences/ allows basic, digest and Kerberos authentication. Attempts to authenticate will be made in the reverse order, respectively. This is pulled from the http_auth_type array, which you can see using the following command: serveradmin settings pcast You can then remove an entry and edit existing entries to change the supported mechanisms using serveradmin if you cannot stop the Podcast Producer service. If you can stop the service then the easiest way to edit the authentication mechanisms is to edit /Library/Preferences/ directly. To do so, locate the http_auth_type key as you see it here: <key>http_auth_type</key> <array> <string>basic</string> <string>digest</string> <string>kerberos</string> </array> Here, remove each string that you no longer wish to support. Removing all except Kerberos will provide support for only Kerberos as an authentication mechanism.

No, not another Snow Leopard post. Well, I suppose it kindof is actually. It’s a pseudo-official announcement that John Welch, Chris Barker and I will be teaming up to write a book on Snow Leopard Server. The book has been posted to and will hopefully be out by Valentines Day. That’s not to say that we will be responsible in any way shape or form for the results if you give your significant other this book for Valentines Day…

As you may have noticed, I’m posting a lot about where tools have moved or what happened to them right now. Next on my list is QuickTime Broadcaster. It’s no longer included in Mac OS X client. So to install it, go to the /Applications folder on Mac OS X Server 10.6. I’ll try and put future items into a single post so as not to pollute news readers out there. Thanks for the patience.

If you grew accustomed to using in Leopard and you’re thinking about an upgrade to Snow Leopard then you might want to pause, if only for a moment. You see, there is no in Snow Leopard. If you were using to allow users to create Blogs and Wikis, then check out the new web interface and see if the specific functionality you seek is there; otherwise look into SACLs and consider pushing out Workgroup Manager. If you were using it to hook into LDAP and allow for looking up contact information then check out Address Book Server, included in 10.6 Server…

A number of videos I’ve been working on for Snow Leopard Server topics. My first time experimenting with YouTube playlists so please be gentle if it’s weird looking… They’ll be posted individually into the 318 TechJournal shortly. These are mostly covering the new features of Mac OS X 10.6 Server, although some of the older videos might be on other topics.
