I am attempting to get an install of Samba authenticating against a Sun
DS as a "stand alone" smb server eg. non PDC.
I have the host OS ( solaris 10) properly configured to authenticate
against the directory, the directory schema modified
to accept the PosixAccount and SambaSamAccount objectclasses, smb.conf
configured and in place and a test user in place as well.
My two question(s) are:
What are the minimal directory account attributes needed to get a user
to authenticate? eg my understanding is that many
of the attributes are used for a samba server acting as a PDC, which in
my case are not needed.
My user base in the DS allready exists, so I will want to just add the
extra necessary object classes and attributes to the
user's existing entries. What mechanism determines what the sambaSID
and sambaPrimaryGroupSID values are ? I am unclear
how these values are derived and what they are based on. Realize my
users already have passwd's in their entries that I am hoping
to not have to change.
any help is appreciated! -john
