Samba LDAP + SSL support on Oracle Solaris 10

Hello there.

I did it ;)

after more than a year of hard working with this project, and I am glad to announce that Oracle Solaris 10 is now supporting Sun LDAP oDSEE and SSL/StartTLS on Samba >3.6.15 !!!

... as of 21 of August 2013 !!! yes, you read it: Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition (formerly SUN Directory Server Enterprise Edition) is now supported by Samba 3.6.x

and also SSL/StartTLS too !! I will publish a blog about it soon with all the instructions. But it´s certainly a more secure setup to deploy ! You will probably need a MOS My Oracle Support valid account. Click the following short links to obtain the patches, SPARC: patch 119757-28 http://bit.ly/19IKOyT X86: patch 119758-28 http://bit.ly/14BKj1C

--> To avoid any problems, make sure to use Solaris 10 update >11.

Note: I have done and run some tests with Solaris u8 and u9 (patched with the latest patchset) successfully.
