    Default [SOLVED] Zimbra Migration Issues

    Hi all,

    I did a zimbra ver 5.0.19 from a CentOS 5.3 to the same environment. I had incorporated samba as a domain controller. The migration worked well since all the users data was intact just that the users cant login into the domain. The error displayed is
    "[2009/11/19 15:46:21, 0] passdb/pdb_get_set.cdb_get_group_sid(211)
    pdb_get_group_sid: Failed to find Unix account for kevin
    [2009/11/19 15:46:21, 1] auth/auth_util.c:make_server_info_sam(589)
    User kevin in passdb, but getpwnam() fails!
    [2009/11/19 15:46:21, 0] auth/auth_sam.c:check_sam_security(353)
    check_sam_security: make_server_info_sam() failed with 'NT_STATUS_NO_SUCH_USER"

    whereas the user is there. I think i have discovered the error which could be that in the posix tab, where the details of the user are /home/kevin and the bash terminal "/bin/bash", the combo boxes aint there hence its like the fields cant be changed hence from the error am guessing that the user has no account in the unix machine through the /bin/bash protocol...thats wat am thinkng but please HELP!!!

    Any help will be highly appreciated

    So this was a 5.0.19 on CentOS 5.3 to 5.0.19 on CentOS 5.3 migration?

    How did you perform this migration?

    I followed this link [SOLVED] Zimbra Migration Strategy thanks to Sir Bob.

    then i copied the /etc/samba folder to the new server with all *.tdb files.
    then edited /etc/ldap.conf to the required settings then imported samba and nis schema
    chown -R zimbra:zimbra /opt/zimbra
    /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmfixperms

    import posix amd samba
    cp /usr/share/doc/samba-3.0.28/LDAP/samba.schema /opt/zimbra/openldap/etc/openldap/schema/
    add nis.schema and samba.schema to /opt/zimbra/conf/slapd.conf.in

    include "/opt/zimbra/openldap/etc/openldap/schema/nis.schema"
    include "/opt/zimbra/openldap/etc/openldap/schema/samba.schema"

    #indexes for PAM
    index uidNumber eq
    index gidNumber eq
    index memberUID eq

    #indexes for Samba
    index sambaSID eq
    index sambaPrimaryGroupSID eq
    index sambaDomainName eq

    then restart zimbra
