[LON-CAPA-admin] Multi-domain

Yesterday, I re-configured the fsuK12 servers so that they are now 
part of the fsu domain. I followed the instructions as per e-mail on 
lon-capa-admin posted Jan 10 2005 by Guy. Since I am merging an 
existing library server (fsuk12l1) into another library server 
(fsul1), I copied all the files under
/home/httpd/lonUsers/fsuK12 on the fsuK12 domain to the fsu domain. 
In addition, I also copied the published resources. However, now 
users cannot login via


though users can still login using the fsu cas system. The /adm/login 
login gives the following message:

User xxxxx at fsu threw error unknown_cmd when checking 
authentication mechanism

A similar message is displayed for the fsuK12 domain

User xxxxx at fsuK12 threw error unknown_cmd when checking 
authentication mechanism

Any idea how to fix this? Seems like I need to specify the 
authentication mechanism but isn't that specified by the passwd file 
for each user?

I can browse the fsuK12 resources and loncontrol recognizes the 
fsuK12 domain. The hosts.tab and domain.tab have the following lines:

[www at loncapa10 lonTabs]$ more hosts.tab

[www at loncapa10 lonTabs]$ more domain.tab
# domain:Domain Name:auth mechanism:auth 
parameters:Language:City:Geo1:Geo2:main library
fsuK12:Florida State University - K12:::en-US:Tallahassee, 
fsu:Florida State University:::en-US:Tallahassee, FL:-84.28:30.438:fsul1
