Problems with SuSe Linux, OpenLDAP, and Samaba

  1. Well right now I am trying to build a primary domain controller in linux, here is my set up:

    SuSe 10
    Samba
    OpenLDAP

    I've used Yast to update everything to the latest version.

    When I issue the command to populate the LDAP database it gives me these errors:
    Use of uninitialized value in substitution (s///) at /usr/local/sbin//smbldap_tools.pm line 120, <CONFIGFILE> line 16.
    Populating LDAP directory for domain foobar.tld (S-1-5-21-2139989288-483860436-2398042574)
    (using builtin directory structure)

    Please provide a password for the domain Administrator:
    Use of uninitialized value in substitution (s///) at /usr/local/sbin//smbldap_tools.pm line 120, <CONFIGFILE> line 16.
    No such object at /usr/local/sbin//smbldap_tools.pm line 322.

    Does anybody know what the problem is and what can I do to fix it,

    Thanks,

    Good luck, I had really good time setting this up :)

    You have to set up LDAP first, then go over the config files in /etc/smbldap-tools before you can do any smbldap* stuff.
