Fedora Update Notification

Name        : smbldap-tools
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 0.9.5
Release     : 4.fc9
URL         : https://gna.org/projects/smbldap-tools/
Summary     : User and group administration tools for Samba/OpenLDAP
Description :
In conjunction with OpenLDAP and Samba-LDAP servers, this collection is useful
to add, modify and delete users and groups, and to change Unix and Samba
passwords. In those contexts they replace the system tools to manage users,
groups and passwords.

Update Information:

This update changes the behaviour of smbldap-tools so as not to stop and then
restart nscd before and after operations that modify the user or group
databases. Instead, the ncsd option to invalidate the databases is used. This
fixes Bug #476504, in which nscd may not be restarted properly if multiple
smbldap-tools processes are run in parallel.    This update also fixes the
dependencies on samba and openldap packages to ensure that the correct
underlying tools are present.
