finally solved this. SOO happy. :)
I'm posting it here, in case anyone else ever has this issue. It was my own
In the idealx howto, smb.conf has three entries commented out:
# ldap filter = (&(objectclass=sambaSamAccount)(uid=%u))
#delete user script = /usr/local/sbin/smbldap-userdel "%u"
#delete group script = /usr/local/sbin/smbldap-groupdel "%g"
I (accidentally?) uncommented the first one, so there was an ldap filter in
place. (no idea what the filter exactly does, but the result was my having
all these problems)
Anyway, glad to be able to proceed again! Stupid me! :)
