I'm planning fresh migration from WNT 4.0 network to Samba3 (with
close to 1k clients). What I really want from samba3 was it able to
replace NT4 domain without needing to go to each client and re-join to
the domain again.
Is this possible with samba 2.2?
Also I note that support for ldap was verygood on samba3, any advice?
I almost have one finished. I also had the problem of migrating the
machine accounts using net rpc vampire. It turns out that samba was
attempting to add the machine to the /etc/passwd file as MACHINE$. My
version of linux does not support capital letters in the username. So
instead, I created a perl script called machineadd:
$machine = $ARGV;
$machine = lc($machine);
Then added the line into smb.conf:
add machine script = /path/to/machineadd '%u'
This adds the account as machine$ (not MACHINE$) to /etc/passwd and then
uploads to the LDAP server just great!! I'm sure this will also work on
