Thanks for the tip. However, it will not work.
I compiled Samba 2.2.5 using "./configure" (WITHOUT any additions such as
#smbpasswd -w root
Setting stored password for "" in secrets.tdb
#smbpasswd -a administrator
ldap_open_connection: connection opened
Bind failed: Can`t contact LDAP server.
Failed to add entry for user administrator.
Failed to modify password entry for administrator.
Which makes sense, since there should be no LDAP server running.
But why should samba try to open an ldap connection at all ?
Any idea why Samba does not use the smbpasswd file but tries to use ldap ???
Any suggestions ? Ideas ? Hints ? ...
