    all users have the same schemas.

    The only difference between root and the rest, is that it got added through the smbpasswd command and not from the admin GUI.

    After I checked the LDAP-tree with a browser I found a entry for root, but with minimum of objects:

    uid root
    displayName root
    objectClass sambaSamAccount
    objectClass account

    Tried a smbpasswd -x root without luck.. Apparantly i need to remove this entry from my ldap, but how?

    I can recommend using Apache Directory Studio

    The ldap root user (zimbra) and not just the "admin" account?

    admin is the name of my ldap administrator, so i believe yes to your question.

    Also in the admin GUI, when i go to edit account -> General Information -> Account Setup: he is set as administrator.

    But is there another user, that is associated to the LDAP password? Atleast I cant see anyone in my ldap tree.

    You cannot control the ldap admin account in zimbra account manager. The ldap admin/root account is specifically called 'zimbra'.
    The bind string is like this :
    "uid=zimbra,cn=admins,cn=zimbra"
    you can get the ldap root account password with the following commands :
    su zimbra
    zmlocalconfig -s ldap_root_password

    Aha, there I got it. root is gone and readded as an alias.
    And now i finally understand why there were so few objects on my users in ldap

    You have been great assistance, thank you for your help!

    i administer a zimbra server for both my company, and our parent company. All of the user accounts are in two different domains, and I was wondering if anyone had any input on making a single samba instance authenticate against both domains.

    If this is not possible, would it be possible at this point to setup an external ldap server, and have both domains authenticate against this ldap server with minimum reconfiguration on the zimbra side of things? I realize this may not be the appropiate place to ask the second question, but these things go hand in hand for me. Thanks in advance for any help.

    hi devnul,

    how do you currently authenticate the two samba-server's.

    what we have done in a similar situation (two samba-server on two location's)

    i am running on both side's a ldap-server (on ubuntu 8.04.1) replicate this two and authenticate samba against this openldap.

    the user's get managed by gosa (http://www.gosa-project.org), when a user get created in gosa with mail-attribute's gosa execute's a script (running with ssh on the zimbra-server, which is only on one location) and create's with zmprov the account with the attribute's out the ldap-server.

    authentication within Zimbra is done against the openldap-Server, so zimbra, samba and unix-logon's are in one database.
    it is necesarry the account-name's are the same in both part's (ldap, samba and zimbra, the domain-part cat get cuted off, when auth to ldap from zimbra)

    this would be some work on the system, but pretty less on zimbra's side.

    disadvantage: password modify cant be done in zimbra.

    greetings
    thomas
