I seem to have it working now. I can connect to ldap server and add groups
Two problems and their solutions are listed below.
a. Stop the computer from freezing before the graphical login screen comes
Edit /etc/ldap.conf and change the following lines like so:
Edit /etc/libnss_ldap.conf and change the following lines like so:
ldapsearch -x -b dc=hkschool,dc=dyndns,dc=ws
b. Set up smbldap to automatically allocate id numbers.
(The script was complaining that it couldn't find the object that
gives the next id number.)
run #sudo smbldap-populate
I hope this is helpful for someone. I might have left out something. I have
been trying a few things over the last day or so, but I think the essential
points are given above.
So now I should be ready to go on Hardy.
