IDMAP and NSS Using LDAP from ADS with RFC2307bis Schema Extension

The use of this method is messy. The information provided in the following is for guidance only and is very definitely not complete. This method does work; it is used in a number of large sites and has an acceptable level of performance.

An example smb.conf file is shown in ADS Domain Member Server using RFC2307bis Schema Extension Date via NSS.

Example13.5.ADS Domain Member Server using RFC2307bis Schema Extension Date via NSS

# Global parameters
workgroup = BOBBY
realm = BOBBY.COM
security = ADS
idmap uid = 150000-550000
idmap gid = 150000-550000
template shell = /bin/bash
winbind cache time = 5
winbind use default domain = Yes
winbind trusted domains only = Yes
winbind nested groups = Yes

The DMS must be joined to the domain using the usual procedure. Additionally, it is necessary to build and install the PADL nss_ldap tool set. Be sure to build this tool set with the following:

./configure --enable-rfc2307bis --enable-schema-mapping
make install

The following /etc/nsswitch.conf file contents are required:

passwd: files ldap
shadow: files ldap
group:  files ldap
hosts:  files wins

The /etc/ldap.conf file must be configured also. Refer to the PADL documentation and source code for nss_ldap to specific instructions.

The next step involves preparation of the ADS schema. This is briefly discussed in the remaining part of this chapter.
