Hi All, I have been using the guide for the last few days trying to get it working on Ubuntu 6.10 Server running in VMWare. The previous posts have helped me with a few issues, the LD_LIBRARY_PATH one for sure with getting samba to not complain.
I seem to have everything working except for Samba authentication. If I make a user in the Zimbra Admin interface, the user is added and I can log into the Zimbra interface, as well as login from the console (after creating a home directory manually).
but, if i try to use that user with samba, I get the error..
To be able to use Samba .. i have to manually run "sbpasswd -a <user>" to add a samba password for the user. its adds a few keys for the user record in the LDAP tree. So it is using the LDAP directory for the records.
smbclient -U <myuser> -W <myworkgroup> //<myserver>/<myuser>
session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE
my question is, did I miss some step that gets these things done automatically when you create a user in the Zimbra Interface? Or is this a configuration error with my Samba -> LDAP set up. Possibly the encryption mechanism its using when it makes the "sambaNTPassword" key.
Also, what is the field "memberUid" suppose to be set to when adding a PosixGroup in the Admin Interface, I couldn't find mention of it in the Guide, other than making an index for it. Currently it is blank in my Posix Group.
One other note that may be important...
When installing either libnss_ldap or libpam_ldap (i forget which one) it asks for a few configuration options that the guide did not mention, such as what type of encryption to use for the passwords. the default was "crypt" but there was a few other settings, one of which had to do with openldap. Could someone please advise me on which one those i should be using..
Thank you all for any help, been a bit frustrated trying to solve these last couple issues I have been having.
