Samba with OpenLdap and ONLY VIRTUAL ACCOOUNTS!
Hello openldap experts,
I am using RedHat 7.3 and I need a solution to make samba works with
VIRTUAL USERS accounts. As i read it from google it's seems to be
possibile if i use openldap. I'm not having any prior experience with
openladp software. Reading openldap documentation i could't find how to
configure samba and openldap to WORK WITHOUT any VALID users SHELL ACCOUNT.
To be clear: I don't want SHELL USERS with different password for
samba!!! I want ONLY VIRTUAL USERS (no one shell account) and al of
them MUST resides in openldap (or mysql or postgress) database with all
attributes (home directory, UID, GID, user, password, workgroup, domain,
etc)..... Did someone test this scenario?
Google said that my problem is not well documented and in the past was
some tryes about this subject. I found also some info about samba and
pam_mysql plugin. It sounds familiar for me because few weeks ago i've
configured this plugin to authenticate users for postfix smtp via SQL
DATABASE, and everithing was ok.
Actually, i want to do the same work with samba, but i don't know if
openldap can do this job exacly as i want. Also, google said that are
more projects using samba with openldap support rather then samba with
mysql(pgsql) support, so i said to try samba+openldap!
Is anybody here which are using samba (as PDC) + openldap support for
users authentication? If yes, what are the limitations for the momment
(for ex: is possibile to apply particular virtual soft quota for each
openldap-samba shared resources? I could't find any answer for this
Any URL with some howtos about configuring samba to use ONLY openldap
database ACCOUNTS are wellcome!
I take a look over this URLS:
but i could't find an aswer to my problem.Please help....
Thanks in advance,
