Re: OpenLDAP debacle in German Paliament Administration
I would start with the smbldap tools from Idealx that come with Samba
(version 3.0.5 +, at least). In my experience, this is not a trivial
undertaking, but I do have such an installation (finally). The short of it
is that you need Samba running as a Primary Domain Controller and have it
reference OpenLDAP for authentication. Quite key is using the smbldap
tools to create your OpenLDAP user account entities, most likely other
tools or your own hands will not get the attributes right.
Purists among us may agree that this is not the correct forum for this
discussion. Likewise, purists on the Samba forums would say the same. Is
there an smbldap forum? Not from the idealx.org site that I can find, but
try http://www.idealx.org/prj/samba/index.fr.html (or
http://www.idealx.org/prj/samba/index.en.html , but not
http://www.idealx.org/prj/samba/index.de.html ;-| ) to get a start.
Oh, and congrats on the !AD thing.

OpenLDAP for authenticating Windows users without AD.
Any hints on where I should start searching for some information about this?
