[K12OSN] Samba, LDAP, and Netatalk

The recent list activity regarding the first two in my subject has me wondering...

As per my last lengthy email to the list about my "free reign" with linux as our servers... Is there any *reason* for me to start with Samba 3.0? If 2.2 works well, it has been well tested, and I don't think I should jump on the 3.0 bandwagon.

Please correct me if I'm wrong. Are there gotchas with 2.2, like folks not being able to change their passwords? (Haven't figured out how I plan to manage that yet)

Thank you for any more advice,

sorry for the double posts...

We are testing out samba 3.0, and I have configured our test server with authconfig, pointing to our ldap server for auth.
I have samba authenticating users via ldap, not using the compat passdb backend, but using ldapsam
now from what I can tell, if I am using ldapsam, then smbpasswd -a will require a unix account, but if I am using passdb backend = ldapsam_nua
then it should not require a unix account, in order to add it to the

system <snip>

I'm still grinding away on other projects, but I managed to get in a
little bit of work with samba 3.0 today.

I've been dumping my documentation and packages here:


The README lists the steps that work for me.

There are a number of rough edges and few nicities missing, but I see the light at the end of the tunnel... which is a good thing since I want to start my samba 2.2 -> 3.0 conversion by Friday ;-)

The ldap-scripts package has a couple of scripts that add/delete/modify
users and groups located in /usr/share/ldap-config/. They are named
luseradd, luserdel, etc and behave like useradd, userdel, etc.
