OK, so here it goes:

- adding samba user root in LDAP SID-500 --> does NOT work
- adding posix user+samba user root in LDAP SID-500, uidNumber=0 --> WORKS
- adding posix user+samba user anyusername in LDAP SID-500, uidNumber=0 

So, my question is: why do I have to create a posix user "root" since my 
system (/etc/passwd) already has one root ? I though just creating the 
samba user would be enough...
