Description Graham Leggett 2004-03-10 13:38:37 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030922 Description of problem: After much pulling hair out while trying to achive the impossible task of setting up a Samba based PDC server with an LDAP backend, it has become apparent that a separate package called "smbldap-tools" is required before Samba is usable with an LDAP backend. This package is included in the Samba docs directory, but certainly not in any usable form. I have been forced to install an externally supplied RPM of this package to work around this problem. RHEL can hardly be called an "enterprise" server if it does not support LDAP properly. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): samba-3.0.2-6.3E How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: xxx Additional info:

Changing product and version.

More information, now that I am running into this problem in Fedora Core 1 (package samba-3.0.2-7.FC1)... Here is the error when running one of the scripts (after manually installing them to /usr/local/sbin): Can't locate Net/LDAP.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/local/sbin/ /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.3/i386-linux-thread- multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.3 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.3/i386-linux- thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.2/i386-linux-thread- multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.1/i386-linux-thread- multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread- multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.3 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.2 /u sr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.1 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0 /usr/lib/p erl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.3/i386-linux-thread- multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.2/i386-linux-thread- multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.1/i386-linux-thread- multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread- multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.3 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8. 2 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.1 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0 /u sr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl .) at /usr/local/sbin//smbldap_tools.pm line 5.

BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/local/sbin/smbldap- usershow.pl line 29. This clearly shows that Net/LDAP.pm is missing which is part of a perl-ldap RPM which strangely is not available for any Red Hat Linux from what I can see. These scripts are extremely valuable to Samba/LDAP and although you do have a choice to remove them from the Samba package, it would be much nicer if you could provide a perl- ldap RPM so that they work. Net/LDAP.pm is NOT THE SAME as URI/ldap.pm which gets installed with perl.
