I'm trying to get samba to use zimbra's ldap password backend and followed Greg's nice howto for version 6..and simply assumed it should work for version 7 too.
I got quite far but the domains are not showing up in the samba zimlet.
I didn't try to add them manually yet since I think they should show up.
I followed this 'workaround' and left out dc=mail in the line "ldap suffix = dc=mail,dc=domain,dc=com" in smb.conf,
(the remainder of the conf file is the same as in the howto, only added "ldap ssl = no").
I tried leaving out the mail part in the two zimlets, samba and posixaccount but still no luck: when logging in the admin GUI I get 3 messages saying
(same for samba and machines).
Warning! Failed to create ou=groups, dc=mail,dc=domain,dc=com for Posix groups!
FQDN of the zimbra server: mail.domain.com. It is the pdc.
Although not recommended by the howto, it is acting as the samba server too.
many thanks in advance.
