[Samba] LDAP: PDC to BDC replication issues

Thank you.

Unfortunately we don't have the choice of upgrading LDAP due to distro not supporting the newer version.  However we have managed to get it to work.  A lot of fiddling around.

I do have another question though ;). Now that we have LDAP replicating, how do I transfer the "samba classic " PDC role to our BDC. I have read that using the domain master=yes in smb.conf is not enough.  Do I need to change the NS and SOA entry in our bind 9 hosts file to point to the existing BDC as we are not setting up Netbios entries in the client machine?  Also will wr need to make changes to other parameters in smb.conf?

First things first:

You should ask this question on the openldap mailing list:

openldap-technical at openldap.org<mailto:openldap-technical%40openldap.org>

The first naswer you may get:

2.4.31 is released on 2012/04/21

2.4.28 is released on 2011/11/26

So both versions you use are realy old, and during the last 7 years openldap team has fixed lot of replication isues. No one is willing to support such old software. Please update first.

current release is 2.4.45
