This zimlet allows you to change the password of your Samba-PDC setup.
The idea is that you have Zimbra authenticating against the Samba-LDAP backend, so you can have Single-Sign-On.
For this to work you need to install a perl-cgi script that I developed in a web server. This script has some requirements to:
* You need to install the Samba::LDAP module, you can take my RPMs from  * You need to install smbldap-tools in the server where the cgi script is, and configure the files in /etc/smbldap-tools properly * The user who runs the web server (Zimbra) needs to have read rights in the /etc/smbldap-tools files.
The web Server
I am using the Apache server that comes with Zimbra, I recommend this. You need to edit the httpd.conf of this Apache to let it execute the script. At the end of the /opt/zimbra/conf/httpd.conf file add:
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/opt/zimbra/httpd-2.0.54/cgi-bin/" <Directory "/opt/zimbra/httpd-2.0.54/cgi-bin"> AllowOverride None Options ExecCGI Order allow,deny Allow from all </Directory>
If you want more security you can modify the Allow from options.
Then copy the cgi script to the /opt/zimbra/httpd-2.0.54/cgi-bin directory, changes its owners to Zimbra, and add the execute permission.
You need to configure the cgi, at the firs lines you need to declare your LDAP_HOST and your USER BASE. Run the cgi (perl sambapass.pl) to see if all the modules are ok.
restart Apache: zmapachectl stop; zmapachectl start
Allow the Proxy Server
zmprov mc default zimbraProxyAllowedDomains "yourdomain"
Deploy the Zimlet
This is easy: zmzimlet deploy com_zimbra_samba.zip and restart tomcat: /opt/zimbra/bin/tomcat restart
