As we understand it, this extension allows you to choose whether or not
you use enternal tools like IDEALX's smbldap-tools? Correct?
How do you add users/groups then with this extension, via adding a normal
user account on the Samba PDC (posix account)? What manangement tools can
an admin use?
The reason we ask, is that we are about 70% porting the IDEALX
smbldap-tools to OO-Perl code to go on to the CPAN, called Samba::LDAP. So
we are just checking this work is not a waste.
This also has some bits in it for adding Open-xchange users (only the LDAP
The work for Samba::LDAP distribution port is because of another Web
Application we are around 50% through called SOSA, The Samba and
Open-xchange Simple Administrator. It is written with the Catalyst
Framework (http://catalyst.perl.org), with a bit of Prototype.js and
mostly the Dojo Toolkit (http://dojotoolkit.org). Beta screenshots
available if anyone is interested ;-)
Anyway, enough of that. Are there any tech docs about your new Schema
Extensions we can read about, as they might be good to make use of inside
