Hi all: I am being forced to remove OES11 from our ZENworks primary server in order to upgrade ZENworks to version 11.3.x as Novell has dropped OES as a supported OS for ZENworks. In removing OES I will loss NCP and CIFS, and therefore access to the server volumes (all EXT4 FS).

So I need to get SAMBA setup to authenticate against eDir or Active Directory. (Our AD implementation is a copy of eDir using IDM to replicate changes in eDir to AD in a one-way fashion.) I have no experience with SAMBA using eDir as a authentication source. I have been searching the Novell support site but I have not been able to turned up good information (probably using the wrong search criteria). Can someone point me to a good source on information and howto docs to get this setup???

Thanks, Chris.
