phpldapadmin group mapping and user home directory
Dear all,

I have some problems with the phpldapadmin when i create a group and
mapping it throug phpldapadmin it shows that group is mapping and ads
users as its group member. when i click on the users it show all the
information as uid, gid, home directory etc.

But when use the command "net groupmap list" it
doesn't show groups added and mapped through phpldapadmin, it only shows
the group which is created through the command "smbldap-groupadd -a <group name>" as well as it's not showing users home directory when i
run the command "ll /home/" means it is unable to create unix user.

Any idea to see all the objects created using phpldapadmin using command

have you got smbldap-tools installed?

niraj.kumar 05-09-2009 04:45 AM

Yes, I have installed smbldap-tools.

You are definitely using the same LDAP directory / database?

niraj.kumar 05-11-2009 04:00 AM

Could not understand what you mean ??
Please define clearly. I am using bdb database and my database directory is
/var/lib/ldap. How can i resolve the problem ??

I think you have phpldapadmin configured wrong, or you installed smbldap-tools after you installed phpldapadmin. Either way, your command

net groupmap list
i presume at a windows machine, is not getting samba groups returned. Please read through this link, and see if that helps you:
