Š Samba and ldap together has been returned on the subject of PDC(NT primary domain controller) The functionality in samba in LDAP server acting as acting as a centralized credential repository Š .

Š Š Š The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol(LDAP) is an application protocol for querying and modifying data of directory services implemented in internet protocol(IP)networks A directory is a set of objects with attributes organized logically in a hierarchical manner A simple example is the telephone directory which consists of list of names(of either persons or organizations) organized alphabetically with each name having an address and phone number associated with it .

The credentials are stored as a centralized repository in the LDAP server .Š Š Š Š A directory information tree often reflects various political.and/or organizational boundaries.geographical.depending on the model chosen Samba is the standard windows interoperability suite of programs for linux and unix In this project samba and LDAP together is integrated to form a Primary Domain Controller(PDC).

Š And the samba server uses this repository to authenticate the clients for mounting shares drives and accessing information from windows/linux machines Authentication is achieved using the PAMLDAP module The pam_ldap provides the means for solaris /linux servers and workstations to authenticate against LDAP directories and to change their passwords in the directory Š Š .

500 It was created as a way to minimize the implementations requirements on directory clients and to simplify and encourage the use of directories among applications .Š Š Š LDAP is an internet standard protocol used by applications to access a directory It runs directly over TCP and can be used to access a standalone LDAP directory service to access a directory sercvice that is backended by x.

type and more values LDAP is a protocol defining a directory service and access to that service LDAP is based on a client server model LDAP servers provide the directory service and LDAP clients use the directory service to access entries and attributes .Š Š Š Š Š Š The LDAP directory service model is based on entities An entry is a collection of attributes that describing it Each attribute has a name.

Š OPENLDAP software is a free open source implentation of the lightweight direct access protocol(LDAP)developed by the openLDAP project Š It is released under its own BSD-style license called the openLDAP public license .

Š Š The Samba is a networking tool that enables linux to participate in windows networks There are two parts to samba.one being the server which shares out files and printers for other PC·s to use and the other being the client utilities .which allow linux to access files and printers on other windows/samba pc·s .

Š A primary domain controller is a server computer in a pre-windows 2000 NT server domain A domain is a concept used in NT server operating system whereby a user may be granted access to a number of computer resources with the use of a single username and password combination Š .
