The ldb interface allows another datastore to be placed behind what
Samba is using, however we will always need to provide the LDAP server
that answers requests from windows clients in a Samba4 installation.
This is because of the authentication requirements (deeply integrated
with AD) on that LDAP server, as well as the need to match other parts
of the AD system.
