Hello. Now I have Samba 3 and I would like to deploy a new server with Samba4 (It will be a new installation, migration is not needed). Zentyal seems to be a good choice but I need to know a few things described in subject.

I need:
1. LDAP access via ldapsearch and other ldap tools (I have wepapps they read-only from ldap, copy machines using email addresses from ldap - read-only, etc.)
2. manage sambaProfilePath, sambaHomePath, employeeNumber, mail, sambaLogonScript values in LDAP per user because a lot of users will have a different login script, homedir etc.
3. I need to do it in shell because I have 1200 users and webgui is only for small changes (for example I need to create 100 users, there is no chance I use gui :-) )
4. I would like to use Zentyal 5 but I did not find documentation for it
5. I will use payed distribution, not free public/beta
6. I do not see LDAP port open (nor running) in Zentyal 5 so I'm a kinda worry about all my LDAP things I need

Is this possible with Zentyal 5 without massive manual changes? Editing config etc. is ok of course.

Thank you very much for your advices and hints
Jan

LDAP is running on port 389.  Confirm by running on zentyal server - "nmap -v localhost"

Look on GUI for zentyal server -> Users and Computers -> LDAP settings.

Another useful tool "dsquery" from client will help debug..

Hope this helps.
