Hi Brian,

	you don't have the ldap header file, and presumably any library files, installed which is required for AD support. The way I have solaris working (I think this is the only way) is you must install OpenLDAP server which includes all the ldap headers and libraries. If, as you probably don't, you don't need/want an actual LDAP server run the openldap configure with --null-backend=yes,

	cheers Andy.

Subject: [Samba] Problem Configuring 3.0.1 on Solaris

I am having problems with the configuration of samba 3.0.1 on a Solaris 2.6
box. This box has no previous samba versions installed.  
When I try to configure samba I get the following error.
# cd samba-3.0.1/source
#./configure -with-ads 2>&1 |tree config.new.log  
fails with the following error:-
  checking for LDAP support... auto
  checking ldap.h usability... no
  checking ldap.h presence... no
  checking for ldap.h... no
  checking lber.h usability... no
  checking lber.h presence... no
  checking for lber.h... no
  configure: WARNING: ldap.h is needed for LDAP support
  checking for Active Directory and krb5 support... yes
  configure: error: Active Directory Support requires LDAP support

I installed ldap on this box then removed the samba-3.0.1 directory and
untarred it again before running the ./configure script which failed with
the same result.

When I  run "make" I get 
# make: Fatal error: No arguments to build

I also came across Bugilla Bug 350   WARNING (present by cannout be
Is there a work around for this bug and is anyone else having a problem with
the configure script on solaris 2.6???
