Description Pavel V.Zheltobryukhov 2003-08-15 00:35:23 UTC
I set up OpenLDAP 2.0.27 for authorization via pam_ldap and it works well. But when I add samba.schema in slapd.conf for my futher work - LDAP server doesn't start and exit with error message 

/usr/local/etc/openldap/schema/samba.schema: line 318: AttributeType not found: "gidnumber"

Part of my slapd.conf 


As experiment, I replace  samba.schema with a samba.schema from Samba-2.2.8a tarball. And LDAP server start without any error messages. Where is a bug?

reorder the includes for samba.schema and nis.schema in slapd.conf
Comment 2 Pavel V.Zheltobryukhov 2003-08-15 22:41:51 UTC
After reordering all is OK. 
Quote from Samba-HOWTO Collection.html#passdb

"Next, include the samba.schema file in slapd.conf. The sambaSamAccount
 object contains two attributes which depend upon other schema files.
The 'uid' attribute is defined in cosine.schema and the 'displayName' 
attribute is defined in the inetorgperson.schema file. Both of these must be
 included before the samba.schema file. 

## /etc/openldap/slapd.conf

## schema files (core.schema is required by default)
include           /etc/openldap/schema/core.schema

## needed for sambaSamAccount
include            /etc/openldap/schema/cosine.schema
include            /etc/openldap/schema/inetorgperson.schema
include            /etc/openldap/schema/samba.schema
include            /etc/openldap/schema/nis.schema

I think that documentation must be corrected for right order (samba after nis)
