While it is possible our parsing of the smb.conf has changed, I think
this is a red herring.
This is an upgrade issue, so we should be holding as many things
constant as possible, once we confirm things like the script has been
copied over correctly and is executing manually on the new host.
Assuming it is confirmed that the script does not execute at all, i
would just say this:
Sadly the LDAP backend of the NT4/classic DC is not automatically
tested in our make test. However I can't see any specific change in
our control flow here, we should still execute that script if the new
account is created over SAMR CreateUser2 with ACB_WSTRUST.
The account will still be created in LDAP even if ldapsam:editposix =
yes is not set, it will just not be created with posix attributes. If
that were set, we wouldn't run the script however.
As a point of debugging, is the 'add user script' script run instead?
