webDAV: sync users access with AD

have to share a directory for a DMS system via webDAV.

1st I created a samba share to mount the dir from the dms clients (win, mac) incl. the auth.
On the UCS samba server I add in the apache2.conf (could also new cfg in …/config-enable/availible)

Alias /webdav /DMSshares/DMSsync
<Directory /DMS_shares/DMSsync>
DAV on
Options +Indexes
AuthType Basic
AuthName “Anmeldung zum WebDAV Verzeichnis”
AuthUserFile “/etc/apache2/user.passwd”
Require valid-user
ForceType text/plain

2nd created some users via htpasswd which could connected to the DMS system.
These users can connect to the DMS system - no problem.

Question: how can I sync these users with the users of the AD & the samba server ?

I haven’t done this before but a quick web search resulted in a German language tutorial stub and the Apache documentation on how to configure authorization using different auth providers.

Of course, this will only work if you want LDAP users being able to http auth. If you want Apache users to be synced back into LDAP, well, there I cannot help.
