Is order important? Was: samba and openldap configuration

Um... are you guys saying that the order in which the schema includes take place is relevant? This could bear on some of my troubles.

thanks... that was it... nis.schema was included,
but samba.schema was before it...
The docs mentioned core, cosine and inetorgperson had
to be before, but not nis...

thanks again.

I'm not sure if it's better to ask on the samba list or the ldap
list but thought I'd try here first to see if anyone has seen this
error message.

I'm following the document samba-ldap-howto on samba.org
and it says to include:

include /etc/openldap/schema/samba.schema
in my slapd.conf which I have done.  I have copied
the samba.schema to this location as well.

When I restarted ldap, it complains:

/etc/openldap/schema/samba.schema: line 147: AttributeType not found: "uidNumber"

Perhaps this is a bit OT for this list, try the samba-tecnnical.

However, I think you missed some include line in the slapd.conf required by samba: schema/nis.schema perhaps.
