Hi folks,

I recently got my ldap master slave samba test environment up and runing.


The ldap systems sync fine, samba users are authenticated by each server
seperatly if I set tham in the samba conf.

E.g. passdb backend = ldapsam:"ldap://ldap2.filmakademie.de" and
passdb backend = ldapsam:"ldap://ldap1.filmakademie.de"


passdb backend = ldapsam:"ldap://ldap1.filmakademie.de
ldap://ldap2.filmakademie.de" works as long, as ldap1 is up. If ldap1 is
down, no authentication / switchover to ldap2 is done.

I've googled, looked up the samba wiki and finaly I found a posting
Fedora 4 related to probems with an ldap_initialize() function ...

So my question, are ther any known problems or what may I check/debug?

Thanks and best regards,

Götz Reinicke
