HOWTO install smbldap-tools on SLES10

You can download smbldap-tools from their homepagedon’t!

If have searched yast for smbldap-tools, you will probably (like me) have found nothing. I tried to install the platform independent RPM package. Only to find that I was missing:

perl(Unicode::MapUTF8) is needed by smbldap-tools

Well there is not specific package for smbldap-tools for SLES 10… but I found that the perl scrips is included in the samba-doc package. After you have installed the samba-doc package, you will be able to find somewhere like this:

/usr/share/doc/packages/samba/examples/LDAP/smbldap-tools-0.9.1

The version might vary when new service packs arrive.

Now copy the the following files to /usr/local/sbin/:

smbldap-groupadd
smbldap-groupmod
smbldap-passwd
smbldap-tools.spec
smbldap-userdel
smbldap-usermod
smbldap_tools.pm
smbldap-groupdel
smbldap-groupshow
smbldap-populate
smbldap-useradd
smbldap-userinfo
smbldap-usershow

And copy the following configuration files to /etc/smbldap-tools:

smbldap.conf
smbldap_bind.conf

From here you are on your own :)
