Dear Samba list,
I am using samba with ldap. All works fine.
Now I want my users to change their own smbpasswd's.
That only works when :
domain admin groups = myusers
secrets.tdb is set to 660
beside this smb.conf must at least be readable by the myusers_group.
Otherwise I get this :
/usr/local/samba-2.2.7/bin/smbpasswd -L -a bert
Failed to open /usr/local/samba-2.2.7/private/secrets.tdb
New SMB password:
Retype new SMB password:
LDAPS option set...!
fetch_ldap_pw: ldap secret is too long (1073817312 > 1023)!
ldap_connect_system: Failed to retrieve password for cn=master, ... from
Is there no more secure and better way to let users change their own
(smb)passwd in the ldap directory
(also to avoid that user x change user's y passwd) ??
