We have a OpenLDAP-2.2.23 + Samba 3.0.14a and the system is logging a lot (one to each minute, more or less) of errors like this:

server smbd[10799]: [ID 510469 daemon.error] nss_ldap: could not get LDAP result - Can't contact LDAP server

Well, I would like to ask to samba specialists if is possible that the problem is this slapd.conf option:

idletimeout     30

I´m using it because I was compiled LDAP with wrapper option and wrapper doens´t support more than 256 simultaneous connections. Then, I´m thinking if smbd process is trying to restablish a closed connection and because that generating the error. Is it possible?
Thank you very much.
