Problems installing CIFS Server and LDAP-UX

Problems installing CIFS Server and LDAP-UX

Hey,

again big problems for me but I think there will be an easy solution.

We have a small CAD environment, running on 5 C-Class workstations and on a pr5470 server with HP-UX11iv1.
To share our CAD drawings with the Windows side, we have installed CIFS Server A.01.10. This was running very well up to now, when we changed to Win Server 2008.

I tried to install the latest CIFS Server, but swinstall prevent the installation because of errors.

After reading the CIFS documents, I installed the missing Kerberos v5 C13.5.06, and then I stopped to install LDAP-UX, because this seems to be a difficult thing and not only a patch.

Is it true, that installing LDAP-UX we have to make big changes in the environment? We have only 7 users and I do not want to get in trouble when changing the Installation deeply.

Is it possible to get the new CIFS Server running without LDAP?

Thank you an best regards

Ruediger

http://www.docs.hp.com/en/B8725-90120/ar01s05.html
Just do what the release notes say about installation.

Hi Ruediger,

This is only what its name says: LDAP Integration product. It's not LDAP, you don't need to configure LDAP to the machine.

# swlist | grep -i -e cifs -e ldap-ux
B8724AA A.02.02.01 HP CIFS Client
B8725AA A.02.03.02 HP CIFS Server
J4269AA B.04.00.02 LDAP-UX Integration
