Default SMBLDAP-TOOLS SAMBA LDAP . Problem when filling ldap.


I am trying to modify smbldap-populate for filling people user in the people ou field, and computers in the computer ou field.

I want this organization :

people user in : "ou=people,ou=user,dc=ldap_srv,dc=net"
computer user in : "ou=computers,ou=user,dc=ldap_srv,dc=net"

Which relationships (IF ANY IS MANDATORY) is there between LDAP definitions in smb.conf

ldap suffix = dc=ldap_srv,dc=net
ldap machine suffix = ou=??????????????????????
ldap user suffix = ou=???????????????????????
ldap group suffix = ou=Groups
ldap domain suffix = ou=Domains

and LDAP definitions in smbldap.conf

# LDAP Suffix

# Domain name the Samba server is in charged.

# Where are stored peoples and computers

# Where are stored groups

# Where are stored domains

# Where are stored peoples
peoplesdn="ou=Peoples, ou=Users,${suffix}"

# Where are stored computers
computersdn="ou=Computers, ou=Users,${suffix}"

# Where to store next uidNumber and gidNumber available for new users and groups
# If not defined, entries are stored in sambaDomainName object.

When I start smbldap-populate, I get the following errors :

Use of uninitialized value in pattern match (m//) at /usr/local/sbin/smbldap-populate line 179.
Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at /usr/local/sbin/smbldap-populate line 180.
Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at /usr/local/sbin/smbldap-populate line 190
Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at

Lignes 179, 180 et 190, ..... which are relatives to ou=computers et ou=peoples, ............

I have no errors about ou=users ( parent of computer and people ).
I have no errors about ou=Domains parent for sambaUnixIdPooldn.

The ldif file is generated, but there is some blank field about ou computer field and ou people field.

Thank you for any help.
