Detailed samba configuration information


I believe I discovered a couple of issues with my AIX systems & my attempts to compile the Samba source code. I have an AIX 7.1 & an AIX 7.2 system available.

While working on a new system project, I discovered a couple of odd issues with the recent Samba source. My previous Samba distribution was from pware, but that site appears to be idle. So, I downloaded a distribution version 4 from Group Bull & IBM AIX Linux toolbox. Perzl only offers version 3. IBM LINUX Toolbox appears to be compiled without ADS support. The Group Bull also failed [see below]. When all available distributions failed, I downloaded the source, 4.8.3 & 4.8.4. There are a couple of issues during the configure stage [below]. I checked various websites & forums & did not discover a solution. I followed the directions via web site; https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Build_Samba_from_Source#Viewing_Built_Options_of_an_Existing_Installation

Samba-tool fails with an error __glue.so. While this not a direct tie to the samba source, it is the reason that I attempted to compile samba with ADS support. I could not locate the samba-python source to recompile. The distribution was from Group Bull. I tested the current & previous release from that site which also failed [samba-tool].

First issue with samba source;
/samba-4.8.3/source4/lib/tls/wscript:51: error: Building the AD DC requires GnuTLS (eg libgnutls-dev, gnutls-devel) for ldaps:// support and for the BackupKey protocol

 # rpm -qa | grep tls

if I comment the GnuTLS check in the wscript51 script, this is the next error.
/export/samba/samba-4.8.4/source3/wscript:684: error: LDAP support not found. Try installing libldap2-dev or openldap-devel. Otherwise, use --without-ldap to build without LDAP support. LDAP support is required for the LDAP passdb backend, LDAP idmap backends and ADS. ADS support improves communication with Active Directory domain controllers.

 # rpm -qa | grep lda

I checked the previous bug reports against wscript. There are a couple of similar issues from a few years ago.

The third issue is that I receive many header errors [re: attached]. I am wondering if I have an configuration issue with the library paths or if they ca be ignored. 



Please see the attached document for any addition details. 

AIX 7.2
# rpm -qa | grep pyt

I also needed package; dnspython-1.15.0, that was installed via g-zip file.

Lastly, which I feel is an issue with the Group Bull Distribution [or LIBPATH] is that I needed to link these modules for smbstatus & testparm to work. This also makes me wonder about other library calls too. Hence, the compile from samba source.
