Description Stefan Bauer 2008-07-04 01:35:41 UTC
Dear Sambateam,

i had to change in the example "Example 2.9. LDAP backend smb.conf for PDC" the value:

ldap admin dn = cn=Manager to:
ldap admin dn = cn=Manager,dc=quenya,dc=org to get the example working.

Even Though i supply the example password like advices:

root# smbpasswd -w mordonL8

i cant made a connection to the ldap server and get wrong credentials.

If i supply the password from slapd.conf for the Manager Account it works like a charm. Probably that is a typo at 8. Add the LDAP password to the secrets.tdb file so Samba can update the LDAP database.
