Description Johnny Hughes 2006-12-28 14:39:45 UTC
Description of problem:
Samba sever and LDAP passwords do not sync when changed in ldap (with samba
installed as a PDC and openldap as the backend store for passwords) ... though
windows changes do (if properly enabled) sync to ldap.

openldap has a contrib module that is already distributed in the Fedora / RHEL
source files that can build the smbk5pwd module that takes care of this issue.

I am attaching a patch that I used to produce this module for the CentOS-4
CentOSPlus repository, in case you want to build this module in Fedora Core (or

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The patch is to version 2.3.27-4 of openldap.

Additional info:
In the patch, I remove the BuildRequires "bind-libbind-devel, libtool-ltdl-devel
" to build on EL4 ... not required to be removed if built on >EL5 or >FC6.

Also, feel free to remove the CentOS readme part of the patch that appends to
the original readme.

Sorry for not closing the bug earlier - openldap-2.3.34-4 was released some time
ago, providing all overlays, including smbk5pwd. I must confess I was inspired
by your patch (although final implementation is a bit different).
