[Samba] AD Integration for Authentication


We are tying to integrate NextCloud like applications with Samba-AD for authentication purposes. We are receiving the error message, "Cannot Connect to Active Directory". The settings used for establishing connection are as follows:

Server Name : dc.example.com
UserDN : CN=Administrator,CN=Users,DC=example,DC=com
Password = ************
BaseDN = DC=example,DC=com.

NextCloud server is able to detect the port as 389. But cannot detect the BaseDN.

However the same setting works perfectly with AD on Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows Server 2012 R2.

Our smb.conf:


# Global parameters
    netbios name = DC1
    realm = EXZA.COM
    server services = s3fs, rpc, nbt, wrepl, ldap, cldap, kdc, drepl, winbindd, ntp_signd, kcc, dnsupdate
    workgroup = EXZA
    server role = active directory domain controller
    idmap_ldb:use rfc2307 = yes
    ldap server require strong auth = No
#Log Level and File
    log level = 3

    path = /usr/local/samba/var/locks/sysvol/exza.com/scripts
    read only = No

    path = /usr/local/samba/var/locks/sysvol
    read only = No


Any suggestions to get this working?


Thanks & Regards,

Anantha Raghava
