    I am trying to install mds on lenny without success. is not suffcient to install on lenny.
    I start this thread to collect some notes and corrections to this howto.


    is wrong. In lenny libsasl2, unzoo and dcc-client are not avaliable.
    libsasl2 should be changed in libsasl2-2. For the others 2, they should be delisted.

    For unzoo on lenny, please see this

    For dcc-client please see this

    using backend bdb is wrong, using it i get errors.
    Instead, with hdb backend slapdcat does work fine.

    during installation, dpkg-config doeas create slapd db and initialize it, thus it is recommended to use hdb instead of bdb

    as soon as you issue:
    do not run to check if Administrator account was created issuing:
    pdbedit -L -v

    but be quite and continue with
    After rebboting, issuing
    u will get:
    Administrator:x:0:512:Netbios Domain Administrator:/home/Administrator:/bin/false

    at last, Domain Administrator is there!

    I was not interested into postfix and mail system, what I tried to get was samb+ldap as Domain Controller, not more not less.

    And at the end, I got it.
