Dear all, Cogratulations for this excellent website.

I have one question and I hope someone may help.

I had installed on Windows 2008 VisualSVN v2.03 and I was able to add users from my Active directory and give permissions to different directories.

I have updated to v 2.1.3 and I am not able to give accesss rights or browse the active directory.

I must say that on the same server I have Sharepoint services installed and I am able to navigate to active directory using the build in add users interface.

Any suggestions

Many thanks Lefteris

In VisualSVN Server we made several fixes in Active Directory browsing interface. Quote from VisualSVN Server 2.1.3 changelog entry:

  • Allow to grant access rights for a domain computer account.
  • Prohibit to grant access rights for a domain distribution group (since Active Directory distribution groups are not intended to manage permissions).

So I recommend you to report your problem to VisualSVN Support Team. They will be happy to investigate and fix your issue.
