    Default [SOLVED] ZCS 6 - problems using Samba and Posixaccount zimlets

    Hello,

    following the tutorial about using Zimbra as PDC (UNIX and Windows Accounts in Zimbra LDAP and Zimbra Admin UI - Zimbra :: Wiki), I have problems when deploying the zimlets Samba and Posixaccount . I have modified the config file for both, using 10000 as gidBase and uidBase but when I activate both the zimlets, the left menu of the admin panels won't show the related administrative panes. Even more strange, if I deploy Posixaccount alone, the pane appears, but if I add later the zimlet Samba..it would disappear again!
    I've tried 3 different clean installations using Debian 4 and 5 ...what can I do?
    thank you for your attention

    I did this kind of installation twice, on Debian5 and Ubuntu8, both with ZCS6 (NE and OSS). First run was kind of hard, but second went almost straight.

    You should be more precise with your problem. In the addins you need to change the ldap prefix as well, not only the gid and uid parameters.

    Zimbra shows no errors in the log (/opt/zimbra/log/maillog) - the LDAP prefixes are right, because if I activate only posixaccount, the entries are created correctly in LDAP. I just cannot access the User Creation menu if both zimlets are enabled. If only the samba zimlet is deployed, although the system log returns no error, there is no menu entry for that...
    The only step I'm unsure is when I have to add the new LDAP indices:
    Code:
    dn: olcDatabase={2}hdb,cn=config
    changetype:modify
    add: olcDbIndex
    olcDbIndex: uidNumber eq
    olcDbIndex: gidNumber eq
    olcDbIndex: memberUid eq
    olcDbIndex: sambaSID eq
    olcDbIndex: sambaPrimaryGroupSID eq
    olcDbIndex: sambaDomainName eq
    is that right?

    Thank you again, let me know if I should post any config or any other info

    check /opt/zimbra/logs/mailbox.log

    for indices there's a separate howto in the 6.0 page phoenix suggested you. but if I got it right it should work even without them.

    btw even if the setup is not working perfectly, you should see the zimlets activated anyway.

    ok - yes I followed the tutorial for the indices...I was just making sure the indices to add are only the ones I listed above...
    In the zimlet list, I can see them active - I've also noticed something strange, if I activate samba zimlet, even the default admin extensions (like the certificate manager) disappear from the menu!
    Look at the screenshot:
    Only Posix Account Deployed


    Both Posix Account and Samba deployed


    The log shows no error on deployment or on restart of Zimbra:

    Unfortunatly my log for when I deployed those Zimlets is long gone... but the "Skipping on mail.xxxx.xxx" part seems to suggest that it isn't actually enabling the samba zimlet.

    unfortunately is not true, the zimlet gets deployed - the posixaccount one - when is alone, so I guess that line in the log means actually something a bit different
