Re: Samba-LDAP PDC
OK, some more research has turned up some interesting stuff. I've been
using the Mandrake article to get things set up. To whit:
The article specs out a good setup and how to use the migration tools to
migrate all of your old Linux user info. That's kool, but what is even
better is that the article mentions that after performing the activities
mentioned one need only use
smbpasswd -a [username]
to make additional changes to the individual user records to make them
samba compatible! :-) Now this would mean changeing passwords on each
individual user BUT, if one were really tricky, one might change one
account, note the differences and then export it to an LDIF. Next you
might write a script that takes the passwd.ldif created by the migration
scripts and makes the requisite changes *before* migrateing it to LDAP!
:-) That way if you have a large user-base you don't have to kill
yourself by changeing each user's password.

I am trying to set up a Samba-LDAP Primary Domain Controller.
First, where can I find a detailed description of this process? All
I've been able to find Googleing is stuff that seems pretty old.
Second, what are some good indices to use in the slapd.conf?
