This is a case in your smbldap-tools: "add user script=
/usr/local/sbin/smbldap-useradd -m %u"
Put in the right arguments that fit your system.

I think also your passwd change wont work this way:

passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
      passwd chat = *New*UNIX*password* %nn *ReType*new*UNIX*password* %nn *

This has to be:

ldap passwd sync = Yes
passwd program = /usr/local/sbin/smbldap-passwd -u %u

Betreff: [Samba] ldap backend and usrmgr.exe

Hello all, i have made a howto on how to install samba as a PDC with an
LDAP backend.

The howto is here http://www.xs4all.nl/~doub/samba-ldap/index.html

It all works well, domain logons work, and adding users to the system
works also from the command line.


But when i want to use usrmgr , i get the "famous" error  A device
attached to the system is not functioning.


I have search the whole day for a solution, but could not find a way to
solve this.


I am sorry if i over looked the answer.

Could someone please tell me what i am missing.



Thanks for your time


Johan Hendriks
