>does samba work with openldap yet ? >if so which version. Samba 2.2.3a, 2.2.3 officially supports the LDAP backend. For a real PDC I still recommend patched 2.2.1a as 2.2.3a has a few spoolss issues. (Although there are a couple patches for 2.2.3a that really help, http://ftp.samba.org/ftp/jerry/samba-2.2.3a-patches/). >i have time to set this up >now and want to give it a try. >anybody successful ? Yes, very.
