I have just put Samba3alpha23 on my Suse 8.1 box and and implement the new goup structure in LDAP.

All works fine expect when you log in a a user other than root on the windows box. The error is :

[2003/04/08 13:30:19, 0] passdb/pdb_ldap.c:ldapsam_search_one_group(2198)
  ldapsam_search_one_group: Problem during the LDAP search: LDAP error:  (Insufficient access)ldapsam_open: cannot access LDAP when not root..
[2003/04/08 13:30:19, 0] passdb/pdb_ldap.c:ldapsam_retry_open(509)
  Connection to LDAP Server failed for the 1 try!
[2003/04/08 13:30:19, 0] passdb/pdb_ldap.c:ldapsam_setsamgrent(2567)
  LDAP search failed: Insufficient access
[2003/04/08 13:30:19, 0] passdb/pdb_ldap.c:ldapsam_enum_group_mapping(2629)
  Unable to open passdb

How should I set samba up so that normal users can access the LDAP directory and not have to be root???
