I was not able to make ctdb working with samba (binary).
I was not able as well to tell samba to use an other database than ldb, It's 
why I am looking for an other way to share the id mapping via idmap.ldb

And as I don't anymore use tdb2 for idmap, I'm using ctdb only to manage the 
public IP and monitore smbd, bind, samba. 
I've commented "clustering = yes" in smb3.conf
