Description Michael Grandjean univentionstaff 2016-06-28 13:13:45 CEST
Both python-univention-connector and univention-ad-connector-exchange depend on univention-server-master | univention-server-backup. At least for write-only-scenarios (UCS syncs in write-mode into MS AD), this is not needed and prevents certain scenarios, e.g. installing AD Connector on a UCS@school slave. Instead of cn=admin, the machine account of the Slave can be used to run the AD Connector:

> ucr set connector/ldap/binddn="$(ucr get ldap/hostdn)" \
>         connector/ldap/bindpwd='/etc/machine.secret'

Removing the package dependency on univention-server-master | univention-server-backup would make more scenarios possible without the requirement to fork univention-ad-connector. Since these are special scenarios and not fitted for everyone, we might want to limit the possible server roles via App Center methods instead of debian package dependencies?
