The name PassSync would indicate that this utility synchronizes
passwords, can anything else be sync'd? I need to be able to sync all of
the following: users, groups, systems, email addresses, and passwords, etc.
Can PassSync do all that? If not is there another utility you might
recommend, either using FDS or not?

i changed the admin password using the admin console and now i cannot
log back in with the new or the old password. i saw a way to change
the directory manager password but i do not know if its the same for
the admin password. please help.
I am looking for someone who has experience extensive experience with FDS to
spend a couple hours on the phone and WebEX (we will provide) to give us a
walk through the installation and configuration of FDS and mutliple master
configuration. Coverage of common troubleshooting steps and common problems
would be expected as well. Assistance with phpldapadmin and schema
configuration would be a big plus.
I am looking to do this as soon as possible to give us a little boost on how
FDS works and how we can intergrate it into our environment.
You may contact me directly in response to this, and I can work with most
We can provide two CentOS installations to do the install over.
If there is a good CBT or Online Class that you are familar with, I would be
interested in hearing about it. But I suspect we only need a 2-4 hour
kickstart to put us in good shape.

We are presently running an NT4-style Samba 3 domain with FDS back end.
Good. I was looking at the README for the most recent Samba 4
Technology Preview. There's a section in there that says:
"The Samba 4 architecture is based around an LDAP-like database that
can use a range of modular backends. One of the backends supports
standards compliant LDAP servers (including OpenLDAP), and we are
working on modules to map between AD-like behaviours and this back-end.
We are aiming for Samba 4 to be powerful front-end to large
The fact that FDS isn't mentioned doesn't necessarily mean anything to me,
but I wonder if Richard or anyone involved in core FDS development could
offer any observations on Samba 4 and the potential for use of FDS as a
Samba 4 back end. I will say that making Samba 3 run with FDS back end
involved a fair amount of knitting (tho' the same could be said for making
Samba 3 run with OpenLDAP back end).
I have only gotten so far as to untar the latest Samba 4 TP. Has anyone
on list gone so far as to configure Samba 4 with FDS?
I'm trying to install the FDS-1.0.4 on RHEL-5. The setup fails with
the following error:
[slapd-dirs]: [25/Jun/2007:14:37:25 -0500] - SSL alert: Security
Initialization: NSS initialization failed (Netscape Portable Runtime
error -8174 - security library: bad database.):

Initialization Failed. error:[25/Jun/2007:14:37:25 -0500] - ERROR: NSS
After which it hangs. Even when I wipe out the entire fedora-ds
directory and re-install the whole thing, the above setup error
reappears again! It used to work fine before, but, once it got stuck
and I had to kill it, I'm getting that error message ever since. I'm
wondering if some files somewhere outside the fedora-ds directory tree
Help would be appreciated!
my fedora admin is showing a blank login. I cannot login because of
it. please see attached screenshot.

I've used fedora directory server now since version 7.1 (of which I'm a huge fan) and just started using Sun's directory server 5.2 (since taking a new job a few days ago)...I installed sun's directory server onto centos 3, and couldn't help noticing that the look, feel and even process names are the same as in fds...does anyone know the history between the two? Are they both based on netscape's directory server? Thanks.
I'm sure this is a super easy question, however I didn't see it documented on the fds website...can someone tell me how to dump the fds database to an ldif file? I'm just looking to make a quick backup routine while the database is online (not from the console). Thanks for your help.
