Discovering sambaSID

Hey folks,

A rather noob question here. However, I'm trying to setup a Linux PDC. Currently I'm trying to call the sambaSID & sambaPrimaryGroupSID, however I'm unable to locate either. I'm running Fedora Core 3 and the default LDAP & Samba packages that are supplied there in. Does anyone know the steps I need to take to get the two SIDs? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not sure I follow your question. Are you trying to find the literal value of the SIDs, or do you need to know how to retrieve the attributes from LDAP? Your domain sid is available via 'net getlocalsid', and the groups via 'net groupmap list'.

thats exactly what I needed to do was retrieve the values to input into ldap.conf. However, even when I get the correct answers from the linux box the conf file still errors out telling me :

etc/openldap/slapd.conf: line 77: index attribute "S-1-5-21-3212495640-1370906461-1368122816" undefined

It still seems that this doesn't work correctly, unfortunetly.

You don't need to put the actual SID in slapd.conf. I think the line you want to add should be this.
index           sambaSID,sambaPrimaryGroupSID,sambaDomainName    eq
SambaSID is an LDAP attribute, the actual SID is the value of that attribute.
