About a week ago I wrote in with a issue with smbldap-populate; it wouldn't
populate because it was missing some packages. This has since been resolved.
I am running redhat 9 on a test server, just for more experience really; I
am using redhat 9 because of a scsi raid driver needed, please do not ask
Ok so here is where I am at> I have been using Samba 3 by example as it is a
fantastic reference; ./smbldap-populate has populated the database
When i try to add a user smbldap-useradd -m -a username it just sits there;
hanging. I press cntrl + c and repeat the process - it says username exists.
I can id username and it shows the user in the correct groups; however
pdbedit -Lv username reports username cannot be found.
smbldap-userdel username also hangs.
smbpasswd username also reports username not to be found. getent passwd &
getent group shows that ldap is working.
ldapsearch -x -h 127.0.0.1 -b "dc=tinistuff,dc=com" -D
"cn=Manager,dc=tinistuff,dc=com" -W - this returns the ldap database as
I am having a few issues with debugging so at this stage I cannot provide a
log file for ldap. Any ideas or suggestions is more then welcome and very
I really appologise in advanced for the lack of the log file; I will try and
get this sorted out.
