Thanks a lot.

We now use the version 3.0.24 from ftp://ftp.hvcc.edu/pub/pware/aix52/
Now the ldap acces is ok with the use of ldapsam password backend but user
authentication fails.

I want to know if the use of samba.schema is absolutely required ?
Our need is quite simple, we don't want to create a domain controller, we
only want to authenticate users access to some shared directories in the
enterprise LDAP (from Sun), and we are not allowed to change the LDAP

We use a "security = share" mode.
On the AIX server, unix accounts are already authenticated via LDAP.

trace.log :
primary group is 0 and contains 0 supplementary groups

Thank you for your help.

Where did you get this distro from?

You can get the BASE code from:


And the correct version of 3.0.24 from:


I hate sending you to two places, but the 3.0.24 on the Samba site is the
wrong one...
