Thx that was indeed the way I was looking for.
but how can i make it default ?
that when i add a user it also has the objectclass -> posixaccount ??
in the user manager from windows ad, i see the unix attributes, but
can't alter them
also when I look at the users with ldap, i have to add the posixaccount
objectclass before i can enter a unixhomedir
can i add a default objectclass to the users layer ??
annyway, thx for putting me on the right track...
