ldb

2:3.3.2-1ubuntu3

Overview

ldb is a LDAP-like embedded database. It is not at all LDAP standards compliant, so if you want a standards compliant database then please see the excellent OpenLDAP project.

What ldb does is provide a fast database with an LDAP-like API designed to be used within an application. In some ways it can be seen as a intermediate solution between key-value pair databases and a real LDAP database.

ldb is the database engine used in Samba4.

Features

The main features that separate ldb from other solutions are:

Documentation

ldb has limited programmer and administrator documentation:

If you need more information than is presented in this document, you may wish to look at the source code, especially the source code in the tools directory.

ldb makes use of the LDAP Data Interchange Format (LDIF), which is documented in RFC 2849.

Support

ldb does not currently have its own mailing list or bug tracking system. For now, please use the samba-technical mailing list, and the Samba bugzilla bug tracking system.

SMB/CIFS file, print, and login server for Unix
Samba is an implementation of the SMB/CIFS protocol for Unix systems,
providing support for cross-platform file and printer sharing with
Microsoft Windows, OS X, and other Unix systems. Samba can also function
as an NT4-style domain controller, and can integrate with both NT4 domains
and Active Directory realms as a member server.
.
This package provides the components necessary to use Samba as a
stand-alone file and print server. For use in an NT4 domain or Active
Directory realm, you will also need the winbind package.
.
This package is not required for connecting to existing SMB/CIFS servers
(see smbclient) or for mounting remote filesystems (see smbfs).
