I am using a RH5.5 system and testing out samba with 7.1.3. I have followed the directions - fairly explicitly on the UNIX and Windows Accounts in Zimbra LDAP and Zimbra Admin UI wiki


samba will not start, nor can I authenticate through ldap for some reason. Below is the error when starting samba, which then crashed immediately.

If you notice - it creates the domain, but then gets an access denied then crashes. Im not really sure what to think.

Can anyone shed any light on this - and/or tell me what other troubleshooting items I can research?

Thanks
