A lot of this taken from http://wiki.makethemove.net/index.php?title=LDAP-Samba Samba will serve three main purposes: Act as a Primary Domain Controller for Windows clients Serve the network printers to Windows clients Serve files to Windows and Linux clients To act as a primary domain controller, Samba needs to access LDAP as the central authentication database.
Introduction and LDAP Design Thanks to http://wiki.makethemove.net/index.php?title=LDAP-Samba. A lot of this is taken directly from there with modifications for my setup. Our domain will take the form of dc=simonandkate,dc=lan and OpenLDAP will be installed on Server01.
I had a motherboard failure a couple of weeks ago in my CentOS server. I couldn’t get the same model to replace it, so ended up with an Asus P5Q board. Slotted in OK, but I then had all sorts of fun trying to get it running properly with CentOS 5.3. Issues being: Network card … [Read more…]

Added some users, set passwords, … [Read more…]
Fun running everything on the same server under SSL – Wordpress, WPG2, Gallery2.
Well, most of our web services are now live on the new server – blog, gallery and website. Webmail still to come though. Configuring it all for SSL has been a fun exercise! I have managed to get WPG2 working with Gallery2, WordPress and SSL so I will post up a howto soon.
I have been busy building a new server for home… our current ClarkConnect server runs out of support in a few months, and it’s so heavily changed from the standard install that I am unlikely to want to try and upgrade it. So it’s been back on the Linux distro trail again. I’m going down … [Read more…]
