OK I'm confused.
Can machines be in ou=Computers,dc=somewhere,dc=net ?
Every thing works fine if I configure so that machine accounts are created under
ou=Users. If configured for machines to be in ou=Computers, I can't add a new
machine. Error returned is "The user name could not be found." This is from the w2k
The release notes for 3.0.11 seem to say adding machines under ou=Computers should
The IDEALX Samba-OpenLDAP Howto (Revision 1.9) seems
to indicate it should work. But ldap.conf needs to be set to:
(I did this.)
The IDEALX Smbldap-tools User Manual (Release:0.8.7)
In section 6.9 on page 18 says no, _unless_ you apply the fix as listed above.
Note that the IDEALX howtos were released after Samba 3.0.11.
I'm using SUSE Pro 9.2 with all patches up to date.
Samba version is samba-3.0.11-2.1 from the binaries on the ftp site.
The /var/log/messages seem to indicate that
add machine script = /usr/local/sbin/smbldap-useradd -w "%u"
is trying to add the machine directly in dc=somewhere,dc=net.
Any help would be appreciated.
