i realy got stuck on testing samba and ldap scenarios. i want to use
PASSWORD POLICIES. But it looked like SAMBA ignores my Policy Settings
within my LDAP DOMAIN Object.
I have set
- sambaMaxPwdAge 300
- sambaMinPwdAge 60
- sambaMinPwdLength 8
- sambaPwdHistoryLength 10
and so on.
Someone told me there is another tool called "pdbedit" i should use to
edit my Samba Domain-Policy stuff. So i tried ... but it showed me
i took lots of trouble with searching internet and reading samba docs
for that problem. But there been no such information...
Meanwhile i found the Solution:
If you change Attributes (values) on the LDAP Domain-Object YOU HAVE TO
RESTART THE SAMBA DAEMON and give it some time too, so it will read
those new values.
I think this is an important information that Samba DOES NOT request
that domain parameters "live" but only on Start-Time. So i recomment
this should be placed in the samba docs at some points.
