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.

VISTA Business Edition does install fine on a Sun Java W1100z Workstation.

I have tried the 32 bits version.


The only driver which is not available from the installation DVDROM is the Realtek AUDIO AC97 driver.

See http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/win/134635 from where you can download it.

At the begining before all the Microsoft Updates were installed I had to complain about some performance issues with some "mouse hangs".

In my setup I have also a NVIDIA QUADRO FX 1100 video card which is perfectly installed by the OS installer (WHQL driver!). I have tried to use the official driver installer from NVIDIA website but it does end with error message saying that it did not find any hardware compatible with such driver (???)...

Anyway it does work fine.
