Bug Description

Binary package hint: samba

Samba schema is missing from samba installation and related parts.

This means:
if one likes to install samba schema into his ldap-server he/she must:
1. get an other distribution. SuSE, Debian, Fedora, FreeBSD or else will do.
2. Install this distribution, then copy samba.schema from /usr/doc/samba/samba.schema.
3. Trow away the installed distribution since we have what we need

Second possibility:
1. get the samba sources. may have helpful hints.
2. install samba compiling form sources
3. copy /usr/doc/samba/samba.schema

The first solution takes about some hours to download the CD/DVD, some further hours to install
The second takes some hours of learning how to setup compilers an else to make samba compile.

Could we please have a solution fixing the installed packages, not relying on one to have to install an other system just to get something fixed because of some stupid missing file???

There's no need to compile samba from source to get the schema, as far as I know upstream doesn't install the schema. You can get the schema from the examples/ directory though.

samba.schema is in samba-doc --- a package I did not install because: why shall I have docs installed on a server?

I'd propose samba.schema to have it's own package making clear holding sample configurations for ldap.

Its not realy a bug.

Are you sure you meant to mark this bug as a dupe? It's certainly a bug in the samba source package and not in smbldap-tools (which doesn't ship the schema file).
