Description Thomas Sailer 2013-02-06 13:45:34 UTC
Description of problem:
samba will no longer start if the ldapsam passdb backend is configured

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.configure samba for an ldapsam backend
(mainly passdb backend = ldapsam, plus for example
        ldap admin dn = cn=Directory Manager
        ldap suffix = dc=xxxx,dc=com
        ldap user suffix = cn=users,cn=accounts
        ldap machine suffix = cn=computers,cn=accounts
        ldap group suffix = cn=groups,cn=accounts
        ldap ssl = off
if an IPA compatible ldap database is used to hold credentials)
2.then start smbd

Actual results:
smbd no longer starts

Expected results:
smbd starts and works

Additional info:
smbd tries to load the backend from:
but ldapsam.so is simply not there
