[Samba] Winbindd can't find ldap server

Are you actually storing your mappings on the ADS (instead of default 
tdb).  If so, I am interested to see your ADS schema modifications.  I 
have been wondering if anyone has tried that yet.

Otherwise, with "security = ads", you do not need the idmap parm, it 
stores the mappings in the winbindd_idmap.tdb (or the cache).

PS - I think it's "idmap backend", not "idmap_backend".
