I've just got the smbldap installer working with CentOS 5 with a bit of a "hack" for the renaming of dag to rpmforge.

If anyone would like it completely untested that is please let me know and I'll mail it over
So do we have CentOS 5 support 'working yet'?

On http://majen.net/smbldap/, the current version is 3.1.1, created 4/30/07.

Centos 5/RHEL5/FC6 performs so much better than 4.x...

BTW,

I copy the CDs to a server, the do a 'linux askmethod' at the prompt. One CD 1 is needed in the install machine, the install goes faster, and no CD read errors..

I use an FTP server, HTTP and NFS are also options.

I've got a nice empty test box setup on the bench with all the Centos disk
ready to have a go one Monday.

I'm starting with a basic i386 install before I move to the actual servers
that I'm going to use the x86_64 version on

I'll let you know how I get on.

Thanks for the pointers guys.

What I'll do is have a look though the packages that the installer
script uses for CentOS 4.4 and then try to find the relevent packages
either via one of the 7 CD's or Yum etc.

When I'm done I'll let you guys know so people don't have to reinvent
the wheel :-)
It would be nice if you are able to actually change the script and get
it out.

I have already built my Centos 5 box ready to install.  Right now I am
fighting on another Centos 5 box that is the DNS server.  It turns out
that RedHat 'altered' how BIND is installed with Enterprise 5, and on
Bugzilla, they are saying that what they did is ok and asking for the
particular bug report to be closed.

I think I have enough figured out so that now I can just get the
chrooted files where I want them and then set up the proper sym lins to
/etc.

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=234508

It is interesting to see how the Centos community is finding things that
RedHat will have to fix before their customers hit them....

If I were deploying on a production system, I would pre-install the
needed packages from the most suitable yum repositories (i.e. dag's
"el5" if missing from base and extras etc.) and then run the
smbldap-installer script *after* installing those packages in order
to ensure more straightforward updates in future. The right place to
fix this is to update the scripts, but I am not a perl programmer.

I think I'll peruse my yum log and make a list ...

These same issues cause the CentOS 4.4 not to work too.

Your query prompted me to try it out. I ran smbldap-installer
(v3.1) on a
CentOS-5 virtual machine (VMware Server v1.0.2) and selected
"centos44"
as the installation target host. I was able to get SMB-LDAP
installed,
configured and running *but* the installation script does not work
out of
the box. I ran into the following problems (and workarounds):

1. Vanilla CentOS-5 does not define the "dag" repository.
    Fix: That is Dag Wieers repository: http://dag.wieers.com/

2. Repository has been renamed "rpmforge"
Fix: In /etc/yum.repos.d/rpmforge.repo change [rpmforge] to [dag]

3. Still can't get several Perl modules due to version mismatches
    Fix: use yum to install packages without reference to version
numbers

4. The smbldap-tools didn't get installed. Manual installation
collides
with perl-ldap module.
    Fix: remove perl-ldap modle with yum. Use yum to get right
perl-ldap and
then install smbldap-tools.

The installer script used a hodge-podge of packages from the "dag"
repository (several old Fedora packages for instance). Dag seems to
have
a suitable "el5" branch that takes care of that, but the scripts
need to
be updated.

As clumsy as this exercise was, it is far simpler than rolling your
own
and it seems to work if you can get to the end of the configuration
step.
Those more familiar with "smbldap-installer" may have a more
elegant way
to fix it.
