This is what has to be done (in the right order!): 1. Add a PAU 2. Make sure, the PAU knows some users - e.g. this way: 1.Add a principalfolder 2.Add a principal into the folder 3.Configure the PAU to use the principalfolder 3. Make sure, the PAU is able to extract the credentials correctly (Session-Credentials are usefull for that) 4. Register the PAU Once the PAU is registered, the default IAuthentication utility which provides all the zcml-predefined principals becomes invisible (speak: "useless"). This means, you don't have a manager any more and you're unable to unregister the PAU again. For that reason, I wrote a Auth-Plugin which is like a principalfolder but all principals defined there are managers. However: I wrote a Mini-Howto on how to remove the registration of a PAU manually. Unfortunately it's in german: http://zope3.mpg.de/cgi-bin/twiki/view/Zope/ZodbMagic#RemoveRegistration -> Please correct me if I'm wrong.
