Description TAKAHASHI Motonobu 2008-12-07 06:00:15 UTC
In smb.conf(5):
The default value of "ldap ssl" is start_tls, but actually the default value is "On" . 

Indeed in source/param/loadparm.c:
        Globals.ldap_ssl = LDAP_SSL_ON;
Comment 1 Karolin Seeger 2008-12-17 02:25:36 UTC
Actually, the default is "" as LDAP_SSL_ON is not defined at all.
We will have a look at this one...
Comment 2 Karolin Seeger 2008-12-17 09:41:11 UTC
I removed "ldap ssl = on" completely as ldaps is realized with ldaps URLs in the "passdb backend" meanwhile.

The default has been changed to "ldap ssl = no" which does not change the default behaviour, but a more sensible value.

The manpage has been updated accordingly.

Closing out bug report.

Thanks for reporting!

I will check when later version is released.

I found this bug occurred when Samba 3.0.23 was released.
