Samba 4 - Alpha 9 problems

Tue Aug 11 13:56:47 MDT 2009

I concur with Oliver Liebel in that Alpha 9 dies after an LDAP call to the backend when compiled to use OpenLDAP.  One thing I did
was immediately restart the samba process while still within the crashed external LDAP client and *could* expand the tree for user
and group objects so I know I am "connected" to the backend.
The problem was when I tried to click on an object to view it's properties, I always get the following:

myserver:/home/samba-git/samba-master # /usr/local/samba/sbin/samba -i -M single -d 1
samba version 4.0.0alpha9-GIT-303c3b3 started.

Also, the POSIX attributes are still missing, such as "uidNumber" and "gidNumber".  Meaning, these are not assignable/recognized
as valid attributes during an LDIF import to the backend.  However, using my external LDAP client, I can see the schema that has
these objects listed.  You just can't use them =)
