Re: [K12OSN] SMBLDAP script with Fedora Core 4?



Dave,

Just to add my .02 -

Back before Matt and David Trask automated the process I spent quite a
bit of time messing around with smb/ldap. I was working off the docs on
idealx. After a few failures and total reinstalls (I wanted to be back
on solid ground) I made careful notes of all files and/or dirs
associated with smb/ldap and renamed them incrementing by 1 along the
way with each iteration. That way I knew I was dealing with fresh files
(without reinstalling the OS) with each new trial I had the old ones to
refer back to. I got everything working in a test environment but put
off the project for production environment for this summer. 

Just curious, why not deploy on FC3 (which has already proved it's self)
on existing known good hardware?

John
