I am trying to use Samba (2.2.7a)+ LDAP (2.0.25) as PDC on FreeBSD 4.7.
But it turned out that LDAP is not easy-going!!!
Without LDAP, things seems fine. I can join the Win2000 machine accounts
and the shares are all right. However, when configurating samba with ldap
support, then smbpasswd couldn't work anymore. I can only use
# smbpasswd -w secretpassword
to add the password for rootdn. Nothing else.
I read some articles online but very few are especially for FreeBSD. In
addition, a lot of articles about samba+LDAP didn't detail about the CA
certificate. I am wondering if there is anyone could help me out this
problems. I think I need to know:
1. What packages/ports do I need to install? Because most papers of LDAP
online I could find mentioned little about Openssl. However, as I know,
it's necessary for the option "ldap ssl = start_tls" in Samba . Also, I
didn't find any ports of nss_ldap, but nss_ldap was mentioned by all
samba+LDAP combination. What's wrong with that? nss_ladp didn't support
FreeBSD? Without nss_ladp, can I still achieve my goal: Samba+ LDAP as PDC?
2. Individual configuration/setting for every package.
3. How to start every service?
Any response would be appreciated.
