[Pkg-samba-maint] Bug#648231: samba-doc: samba-schema-FDS.ldif.gz is invalid, according to "ldapadd/slapd"
helge.hafting at hist.no

When setting up a samba+ldap PDC, the ldap databse needs to be told
about various samba specific fields. (Such as windows passwords.) This
used to be done by copying the samba.schema.gz file from
samba-doc, and unpack & include it.
Newer versions of LDAP want this information
in a LDIF file instead. I guess this is why
you also distribute samba-schema-FDS.ldif.gz with samba-doc.
Unfortunately, when I unpack this file and
tries to add it with:
ldapadd -Y EXTERNAL -H ldapi:/// -f samba-schema-FDS.ldif
all I get is an error. Some number in this file is invalid according to
the schema, and the update is rejected.
Fortunately, there are guides on the net on how to create a ldif file
from a schema file, so a working ldif file can be created from the
samba.schema.gz file. See for example this URL:
I have created such a file and it worked for me. It is attached as
samba.ldif, if you want to use it.
