to be so close on conf files, sometimes i overlook some options
and indeed you point it to me.

Trying empirically with a new smb.conf. If found out that

username map = /etc/samba/users.map 

(guests = *)

was not correctly set up. I even didnt try to use it. 
I suppose that swat creat it at my first basic setup.

More or less it works now. Thank you.

Now comes the cosmetics setups. Profiles etc.

Can someone point me to some documentation about
how privileges had to be with security in mind.
(root in ldap == distorted stomach)

Thanks in advance
