Because there is no runtime configuration to select LDAP or classic SAM in SAMBA 2.2.x, we needed to build the binaries twice. Therefore you must in addition to samba and smbclnt install either samba-classic and samba-classic-client or samba-ldap and samba-ldap-client. These packages contain the appropriate binaries for the wanted SAM and conflict to each other pair.
Packages needed for classic, smbpasswd based SAM: samba, smbclnt, samba-classic, samba-classic-client
Packages needed for LDAP based SAM: samba, smbclnt, samba-ldap, samba-ldap-client
This version includes the winbind daemon to resolve names from
Microsoft Windows NT(tm)servers. You need to configure this service in
/etc/smb.conf. See the manual page -
man 8 winbindd- for more details. winbindd is not automatical configurable and activated at boot time. After you've configured the service you need to set
rpm -Uvh --nodeps samba.rpm smbclnt.rpm
Please note: You will need either the update for Samba LDAP or the Update for Samba Classic (smbpasswd) in addition to this patch in order to get a working system.
