    Default Zimbra Integration With Samba - Ubuntu Based

    A nice 'How To' for creating a Primary Domain Controller with Zimbra, this is specifically for Ubuntu but should be valid for all operating systems.

    Talking This is Awesome

    I am highly impressed.
    Jholder, I think you guys should go ahead and implement this.
    You'll kick MS-Exchange and AD out of the universe.

    It already is implemented: UNIX and Windows Accounts in Zimbra LDAP and Zimbra Admin UI - Zimbra :: Wiki

    Just tried the Ubuntu guide with Ubuntu 8.04 and Zimbra 5.0.8. Worked fine except some minor spelling errors

    A huge thank you from me. Now we can finally get rid of our AD.

    Were these spelling errors in the How To' article and did they trip you up? Obviously I didn't write the article, I just posted it here for reference. If the spelling errors were with the implementation perhaps you wouldn't mind making a note in this thread for people trying this in the future?

    On page 2
    Code:
    chown zimbra /opt/zmibra/openldap/etc/openldap/schema/samba.schema
    chgrp zimbra /opt/zmibra/openldap/etc/openldap/schema/samba.schema
    Which btw can be replaced with
    Code:
    chown zimbra:zimbra /opt/zimbra/openldap/etc/openldap/schema/samba.schema
    Another thing is that it's not necessary to download the samba source to get samba.scema. Install samba-doc and it's in /usr/share/doc/samba-doc/examples/LDAP/. You'll need to "gzip -d" it though.

    Also it's not necessary to install libpam-ldap in Ubuntu 8.04 since it gets installed when you install libnss-ldap in the previous step. These packages are also changed a bit in the setup process in 8.04. You have to specify ldap://ip instead of just server ip.

    We don't pre-announce product release dates but I would estimate it to be sometime in August (that is only an estimate at this stage). Obviously you can subscribe to the Announcements forum and get notified as soon as it hits the streets.
