They only require OpenLDAP client commands (ldapadd, ldapdelete, ldapsearch, ldapmodify, ldappasswd) and make administrator's work a lot easier avoiding the need to configure PERL and each library dependency (e.g. Net::LDAP).
These scripts are very simple to configure by not requiring any Samba-related information (SID, profiles, homes, ...) : management of Samba attributes is entirely done by standard commands (net, smbpasswd et pdbedit) used together with the scripts. Moreover, most of the configuration is guessed from the one of libpam-ldap, and everything should work out from the box for most users.
The scripts may be used independently - within command lines - or automatically by Samba (like smbldap-tools), to handle POSIX information within accounts before adding Samba information.
ldapscripts package shipped in Debian is slightly modified to work out of the box. If you have libnss-ldap installed and configured, ldapscripts will use configuration from libnss-ldap.conf. More details could be found in comments inside /etc/ldapscripts/ldapscripts.conf If you have any problems with ldapscripts' utilities, first look on /var/log/ldapscripts.log where all details, warnings and er more»
