I’m not advanced administrator so this may be n00b question but I’ll be grateful for help.
I have following problem: I have to move my server (ubuntu server) from old machine to new. I have samba & ldap on old server, so I’ve copied the configuration files from the old machine to new machine, made
smbldap-populate, and when I use
smbldap-userlist on the new machine it lists all users from the old machine. But when I try to log in as any of these users, or show its id (
id username) I get
no such user error.
What more I have to do to use these accounts on the new machnie?
It’s likely you haven’t copied the PAM configuration that actually tells the system to use LDAP to look up users. Take a look in
/etc/pam.d on the old system. Depending on the version, you’re looking at
system-auth and possibly a few others.
If you have copied these configs, you should be looking at various logs in
/var/log for any errors related to PAM. If you do find some and you’re not sure how to proceed, go ahead and update your original question with those log entries.

- Provide Samba access based on LDAP info?
