It is unforunetly not very verbose when the 'guest account' is not
*complete* in ldap.  By complete, I mean (assuming the user is

The 'nobody' user must exist in ldap, with posixAccount and
sammbSamAccount attributes.  This replaces any account in /etc/passwd,
or at the very least all the values must match (replace is safer).

The posix primary group of 'nobody' (likely to be either 'nogroup' or
'nobody') must exist in ldap, replacing the value in /etc/group.  The
posix primary group of 'nobody' should be mapped to the 'domain guests'
SID using the group mapping tool.
