sorry for my 2nd post, but the last message seems to be corrupt.
it's not really an issue for me but could you please comment this
behaviour i described?
may be i can then open a bug report.
[Samba] [Problem] Samba v3 Errors when group and user exists with same name]
i have a question, may be it's be design using samba v3.0.14a and
users in dn: uid=xxx,dc=my,dc=domain
groups in dn: cn=yyy,ou=groups,dc=my,dc=domain
i have a user called "biblio" and a group called "biblio"
normally this is no problem under linux but samba seems to "emulate"
windows behaviour indirectly.
if i want to edit the group "biblio" with usrmgr.exe it fails because
samba is first looking for "uid=biblio", which succeeds, because there's
a user "biblio" and is then looking for a group with
fails because my group "biblio" has a different SID.
i cannot add/remove members to group "biblio" because of the described
behaviour above, too.
could you please tell me whether it's a bug or by design?
why is samba not looking for groups like
"(&(objectclass=posixGroup)(objectclass=sambaGroupMapping))" instead of
first looking for "(&(objectclass=sambaSamAccount)(uid=biblio))"???
thx very much!
