I've tested the settings above without any success.

I'm not sure I understand you right. I'm using the simplest 
configuration without domain but workgroup only with the only server - 
master browser. Just for the case I've mapped all group with type 2 
(domane group)

Ok. I knew it. So, I'm using nss_ldap-211 from padl.com and it is 
definitely working good within Unix framework (id -a, ls -l...  show 
right information). However according to the LDAP SERVER log file samba 
even do not request for supplementary groups. By the way samba log file 
level 10 I sent you also do not show any requests to LDAP for 
supplementary groups.
