    JBREM000200: Authentication failed: the server presented no authentication mechanisms

    Luigi Banzato Newbie



      I am running wildfly-8.0.0.Final and have been successfully using the wildfly-maven-plugin to deploy my project to a local standalone wildfly instance.


      However, when I tried to configure the maven plugin to connect to a remote server (also standalone), it is not working.


      Here's the plugin configuration:




      The Management Console is available at, but the maven build fails:

      And here's a link to my standalone.xml file:



      I'm sure the user and password used in the pom.xml file exist in the Wildfly instance, in the ManagementRealm (I double checked in the mgmt-users.properties file, and it is there).


      In the past versions, the port was different (I had this working on JBoss AS7), but in the final release of WildFly they reduced the number of ports (WildFly 8 Final is released! · WildFly) and after that, I didn't manage to get it working again.


      I've done a lot of research on this, but most of the discussions I found are either of people having problems with local deployment or EJB remoting, not the maven plugin. I've tested all suggested solutions I found and none of them worked.


      If anyone has gone through this problem before, or has any pointers, I would be really grateful.
