Hi, I am testing Samba-3.0.0.beta1, which we will use to migrate our 
Win2000 domain ( at last ;)  )

* things done:
	- Configured LDAP + permissions
	- Configured Samba.

pdbedit -a already creates users in LDAP ( objectclass: account; 
objectclass: sambaSamAccount )

* observed problems:
( might be due to some error on my part, please explain in that case )

	idmap backend = ldap:ldap://localhost	makes pdbedit segfault ( with every 
option, especially -L ). Level 4 debugging shows it is stopping right after 
parsing smb.conf
( currently "working" with idmap backend = )
	idmap backend = winbind	does not work

	pdbedit -i tdbsam -e ldapsam -g	does not export builtin groups to LDAP. 
Shall I create them by hand? Which objectclass shall I use?

	pdbedit -L -g does not list *any* group
	pdbedit -L -g -b tdbsam does list builtin groups.

wbinfo -u times out, unable to return anything
( We did not supply -Ausername%password.... is that needed? in that case 
which user? privileges? )

We are attempting to use NUA. Can switch to POSIX users/groups in LDAP if 

Please, ask for any additional information needed. I will be glad to 
provide it and help test/debug this thing.
Thanks in advance.
