    Default Could not start kstartupconfig error!

    Hello, Dear all,

    I got error message : "could not start kstartupconfig, check your installation" when I logon to linux system after deployment of ldap and samba extension on my OpenSuse10.2

    all extensions package deployed successully, and samba domain created and I can see two addtional tab in Zimbra Admin UI,

    I enable ldap-client on one desktop(nss_ldap and pam_ldap installedI ), when logon with the created username from linux desktop, always get this error message. What 's the problem? do I need copy all .conf file to client pc also? thanks!

    by the way, I'd like to answer one thread that I post last week about where the nss_ldap.conf and pam_ldap.conf are, now I found that only one file called /etc/ldap.conf used in opensuse.

    the all related .conf file that located on the server installed samba as below.

    Default addtional information!

    other informat:

    if I logon with root and create one folder the name as username in home direcotry, e.g /home/bylong , bylong is a username.
    and change owner by issuing command # chown bylong /home/bylong
    then everything is ok.

    thus, I guess there are something wrong with
    /etc/pam.d/common-session file

    #session	required	
    #session	optional
    session         sufficient
    session         sufficient
    #session	        optional
    session         required skel=/etc/skel umask=0077
    system seems did not invoke to create user home folder when user fisrt logon.

    what 's that reason? many thanks in advance!

    the problem sovled by myself, now it is ok. I 'd like to share it with you all, especially with Suse user.

    in fact , it is very simple, no need exactly follow the steps on the guide to config common-account,common-auth, common-account and common-session. just enable ldap client in Yast, and make sure to tick 'make home directory' option is on. all settings for these files automatically be written. after that run SuSEconfig to make all configuration reloaded.
