While attempting to configure my (working) Fedora DS installation to work
with Samba 4, I came across the following error:
root at host/usr/share/samba# setup-ds
Could not import LDIF file 'suggest'.  Error: 256.  Output: importing data
suggest file could not be opened: absolute path  required.
[03/Feb/2009:11:48:01 -0600] dse - The entry cn=schema in file
/var/lib/samba/private/ldap/slapd-samba4/schema/99_ad.ldif is invalid,
error code 21 (Invalid syntax) - attribute type serialNumber: Unknown
attribute syntax OID ""
[03/Feb/2009:11:48:01 -0600] dse - Please edit the file to correct the
reported problems and then restart the server.

Error: Could not create directory server instance 'samba4'.
Exiting . . .

I used this command to generate the fedorads.inf file:
/usr/share/samba/setup/provision-backend --realm=domain.net
--domain=domain --ldap-backend-port=9830 --ldap-admin-pass=<pass>
--ldap-backend-type=fedora-ds  --server-role='domain controller'

Any idea why this does not work?

Thank you,

Timothy Pearson
