Re: [Samba] Adding indexing to samba AD question.




Hi Louis,

I just checked and I can confirm that this does work, I have my own custom
attributes in the @INDEXLIST in my AD:

root@dc1:/# ldbsearch -H /usr/local/samba/private/sam.ldb  -s base -b
@INDEXLIST
# record 1
dn: @INDEXLIST
@IDXONE: 1
@IDXVERSION: 2
@IDXATTR: mycustomattrib1
@IDXATTR: mycustomattrib2
@IDXATTR: volTableIdxGUID
@IDXATTR: USNIntersite
@IDXATTR: uSNCreated
@IDXATTR: uSNChanged
[...]
distinguishedName: @INDEXLIST

# returned 1 records
# 1 entries
# 0 referrals

I've gone back over my notes from when I created this, and I think that in
my case I added the searchFlags: 1 attribute directly whilst adding my
custom attributes to my AD schema; but I can't imagine it wouldn't also
work if you add it later. Mine have been in place for the last 2.5 years,
at any rate.

Cheers

Jonathan
