I'm a complete beginner with Ubuntu. I've been looking after a MS/Windows environment for about 10 years, but I have been asked to implement an Ubuntu network to a few of our sites. I have had some partial success with some of the elements (DHCP, Clonezilla, Static IP addresses etc.) I am now stuck on LDAP, or a method of user account creation/authentication.
Brief description of the requirement.
1 server (for DHCP/DNS/Small amount of file storage space)
Approx 30 PCs running Ubuntu desktop which users will need to be able to use their login to and access a shared folder.
This is an educational suite for a private company which might require a turnover of new user account creation/deletion on a weekly basis.
There are no other type of servers connected to this network.
I have worked through the document here for the initial installation. This works fine. But I don't want my domain to be called "example.com" I have tried substituting "example.com" for "mydomain.local". But, once I do this, I have the following error:
ldap_bind: Invlaid credentials (49)
I have not changed the password from the example ldif files which works fine before I attempt to change any of the domain informaiton.
As I said, I am a complete beginer at this, but I do have MS experience to try and draw on when it comes to making a comparison.
I would greatly appreciate any help if possible.
