Description Thomas Otto 2003-06-25 04:04:18 UTC
if existing ldap/unix users have their DN like cn=Marius
Muster,ou=People,dc=example,dc=org then the smbpasswd program creates an second
entry with a DN like uid=muster,ou=People,dc=example,dc=org instead of extending
the original one. 
unix passwd sync is broken.
Comment 1 Andrew Bartlett 2003-07-05 07:31:53 UTC
Samba will match the user based either on their username (uid) or now on thier

I will need much more detail as to what your existing LDAP entires contain that
should clue us in that we should merge onto them.  What are you using as your
unix userid in this directory?

Tested.  This works now.  Marking as fixed.

non-production release versions.
