After having got ACL and Samba working I'm now onto getting LDAP support
running as well. I've compiled my Samba 3 with --with-ldap, (I'm actually
compiling it as an RPM as it needs to go on a RedHat machine this time)
The include/config.h shows that LDAP successfully compiled but when I come to
setting up LDAP in smb.conf testparm gives the following:
Unknown parameter encountered: "ldap bind as"
Ignoring unknown parameter "ldap bind as"
Unknown parameter encountered: "ldap passwd file"
Ignoring unknown parameter "ldap passwd file"
Unknown parameter encountered: "ldap server"
Ignoring unknown parameter "ldap server"
Unknown parameter encountered: "ldap scope"
Ignoring unknown parameter "ldap scope"
Which is odd considering that they are in the smb.conf man page as part of the
new experimental LDAP. So I ran "testparm -s /dev/null -v | grep ldap" and
got hte follow:
ldap suffix =
ldap machine suffix =
ldap user suffix =
ldap filter = (uid=%u)
ldap admin dn =
ldap ssl =
ldap passwd sync = no
ldap trust ids = No
ldap delete dn = No
So there is some LDAP stuff in the samba compile I did just not the main stuff
like what server I'm going to use and the password etc etc.
Any ideas people, or have I forgotten a compile switch??
