This is Solaris 2.9. Name resolution is fine (ns0 is my WINS server).
# time ./nmblookup -RU ns0 jersey
querying jersey on jersey<00>

real    0m0.167s
user    0m0.150s
sys     0m0.010s

DNS performance is correct..Solaris lacks a 'host' command by default
which is a bit of a hassle, but watching the logs of the DNS server
shows that requests are handled in milliseconds.

You raised an eyebrow at security = domain in my config. It's been
that way since 2.2.8 and (poor) performance was never sufficiently
noticeable to warrant benchmarking.

Other servers are running Linux and have security = user and the
following params for querying the LDAP server directly:

    passdb backend = ldapsam:"ldap://ldap-master.example.com"
    ldap suffix = dc=bpinet,dc=com
    ldap admin dn = cn=Manager,dc=example,dc=com
    ldap passwd sync = yes
    ldap delete dn = no
    ldap user suffix = ou=People
    ldap machine suffix = ou=Computers
    ldap group suffix = ou=Group
When I use this in the config, authenticated shares don't work, and
the following is logged:

[2005/02/02 08:10:32, 0] passdb/pdb_interface.c:make_pdb_methods_name(684)
  No builtin nor plugin backend for ldapsam found

I didn't compile --with-ldapsam. From what I read in the archives, I
thought it was a compatibility shim for 2.x ldap backends, and that
with nsswitch things would Just Work. Now that I look more carefully
at similar problems, I think I do have to compile --with-ldapsam.
Which means I can then use the above params, which hopefully means the
performance issues will sort themselves out. Does that sound
