The tgz file is incomplete, I've notced this too. The rpm is complete, so I've 
downloaded the rpm file instead, unpacked it, and copied the scripts to their 
respective location.

My system is now runnung, but I think there are some bugs in the populate 
script, e.g. the SID of the Administrator account should end with -500 as I 
know, because it's predefinded. Any comment from the author ???

and please take care of the default groups in the smbldap.conf file, default 
machine account points to "Print Operators" (550) should be "Domain 
Computers" (553).

I've also changed the gidNumber and uidNumber of the guest account and "Domain 
Guest" group to the default values of my system (SuSE9)

after this all worked correctly except some log-entries .
"Failed to open group mapping database" ....


"failed to decode PDU"

any suggestions ...?

regards odi
