  • server OS : Centos 5.3
  • hostname : example.com
  • dnsdomainanme: com
  • domainname:
Well everything is working fine .All the uses have been added to the database.database is bdb in ldap configuration.
Now client machine is on windows xp. how to integrate Windows Xp with the LDAP server for authentication.

You can't really. There is pGina which is a defunct project for generic authentication, which still should actually support ldap fairly well on XP (but nothing newer), but outside of that you're going to be kinda stuffed from what I'm aware of.

You can use Samba as a domain controller, which can get its authentication from ldap.

Thank you guys for your time and opinion. Blue_Ice was right about the solution. I have not configured DNS server for this scenario. when I try to change the domain name of XP to LDAP domain name or linux domain name it give error of NO domain controller could be contacted. By the way I'll configure SAMBA as domain controller then integrate it with LDAP. I'll let you know the outcome.
Thanks again for your time and opinion.

Hi there this is what worked for me:
In current situation there is no need to configure the DNS server.Only thing which caused error was creation of users and machine trust account before configuring samba PDC.
Yes In Official SAMBA HowTo document section 3.5.5 they have clearly stated that all users accounts should be created afterwords i.e. after samba server configuration.Otherwise samba will consider them as local account.
Thus I reinstalled server , then configured LDAP and samba with LDAP support first then added users accounts locally and samba accounts and machine trust accounts.
Then when I changed or configured Windows Xp i.e. changed the domain name bingo it went so smoothly it took new domain and then after the rebooting Xp It showed login window with the option of Domain log in and local machine log in
Thank you all guys and SAMBA TEAM for your reply and help.
If anyone wants step by step configuration, I'll post it on request.
Now with this We proudly declare this thread as SOLVED.

Hi there, i have configured my LDAP server on redhat6 and successfully authenticated other RedHat6 clients on it.
But when i try to authenticate windows XP users i get an error saying the domain controller cannot be contacted.I am able to authenticate using pgina but i wanted to be able to login using the default login window of XP.
I have also configured samba and edited the named.conf files along with forward and reverse zone configurations.
With named.conf file configured i get an error in XP client saying that
1. The DNS SRV record is not registered in DNS
OR
2. One or more of the following zones do not include delegation to its child zone.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thanks!
