samba causes error "smbldap_open: cannot access LDAP when not root.."
Last modified: 2010-11-09 08:15:16 EST
Description of problem:
On shared directories that contains ACLs, samba causes the error "smbldap_open:
cannot access LDAP when not root.." on every ACL access in /var/log/messages.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
3.0.23c (redhat current)
Just share a directory with ACLs and options 'inherits permissions', 'inherits
acls' and 'inherits owner'
Slow the Samba Server
This is a known issue in samba 3.0.23c that is corrected in the patch
We have a new version of samba in the Beta channel.
This version fixes a number of errors like the one reported.
If you can try it and report if it is fixed, that would be great.
Has this issue been properly resolved yet?
I am also experiencing this problem and it's a real problem as it causes file
access difficulties. This is particularly noticeable on Excel files where they
permissions are changed to read-only.
For these files in a shared directory it then makes then unusable unless I
intervene and modify permissions/acls which is quite disruptive.
I'm currently running samba 3.0.25b (RHEL 5 x86_64)
I have the same error message showing up in machine smbd logs. I added machine to the domain successfuly. However, when I try to login on using a domain account on the added machine. It fails. The error message shows up: The system cannot log you on now because the domain ____ is not avaliable. Any ideas, what I am doing wrong ?. I am using samba 3.2.0 release 1.pre3.9.fc9 and Fedora directory server 1.1.1 release 3.fc9.
Any help would be highly appreciated.
Guenther can you look into this one ?
Should be already addressed in the latest versions of the package.
