VIRTUAL ACCOOUNTS!From: Alex Pita <firstname.lastname@example.org>Date: Mon, 16 Dec

rv:1.2) Gecko/20021203 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 question too...)!
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,
