[Samba] Problem with SID

Hello all

I have a Samba-3.0.0 server configured as PDC running agains openldap.
So I have an entry of the form:
sambaSID    S-1-5-21-xxxxx-yyyyy-zzzz-rid
in my dircectory

If I check the properties of a file under Windows on the PDC I get the
information all right displaying the owner
of the file as: user[Domain\user]

Now I have a couple of other Samba-3.0.0 servers which are not configured
as PDC/BDC or whatever but are verifying
the user information against LDAP also. Access rights to shares etc. work
fine on those servers, the only thing
ist that when I look in windows at the owner of a file I get "
S-1-5-21-xxxxx-yyyyy-zzzz-rid" and not
user [server-name\user].
Because I do not know in advance what users will have to join the domain
every user has a "sambaSID" entry with
the SID of the PDC.
I didn't have the problem with 2.2.8a in combination with LDAP.
As far as I remember ther was no sambaSID such attribute in the 2.2.x LDAP

Anyone knows how to solve that Problem??

Help is greatly appreciated.

Best regards
Robert Gehr
