I've tried your suggestion a while back, even rolled back smb.conf to the
most basic setting for pdb_mysql to work.
anyway, i'm redoing it from scratch. crossing my finger hoping it would
works this time.
anyone here got a working samba with pdb_mysql? who is the current
maintainer for samba pdb_mysql?? i might try email him directly.
what might be the reason behind the lack of documentation for pdb_mysql?
To me, mysql is a great idea to store and manipulate users information.
not a clue found for two weeks googling around the net. seems like samba
developers have different opinion?
is pdb_mysql new feature in samba?
thank you so much for your help.
