Thanks. I think the problem may lie in the fact that the rootdn for our
ldap db is cn=manager,dc=... and when I set the password in samba using
smbpasswd -w PASSWORD it responds :
Setting stored password for "cn=Manager,dc=... in secrets.tdb
I have created a "root" user in ldap and even set it up with the same
password. I noticed that when I try to add a machine using different
users samba will do a search using the following search parameters :
which means the ldap rootdn when set to cn=Manager may create problems.
I don't really want to reset the rootdn and would hope that this is in
fact not the real issue.
I would like to say thank you, in all sincerity, for the quick, rapid
response. I'm still always amazed with the opensource community and it's
willingness to respond and help others. Thank you!
