Bug Description

Binary package hint: ebox

The current version in the archive is quite old: 0.12.

eBox 1.3 is already available and takes advantage of new features of the openLDAP version that is shipped in Karmic.

eBox 1.3 series are the same as 1.2 but with a new great feature. eBox has
gained the ability to be set up in a master-slave architecture, allowing
several slave eBoxes to use a master eBox's LDAP to keep their users.

This way you can set up a master eBox to hold all your users and groups and
then have a few slave eBoxes with different services such as Samba, Asterisk,
Jabber or Mail using these users that are available in the master one. Each of
these services is configured individually and just will share the users.

It also manages the LDAP directory more nicely. It does not wipe it out
when the module is installed for first time and will use your current
