This entry is normal, I believe.  But according to you smb.conf file, you
aren't using the username map parameter, so the fact the file is their
shouldn't matter.

I don't know if this will help you with your problem or not.  I'm very new
to Samba but you will notice that you group SIDs aren't consistent.  My
guess is that this could be causing someone of your problems.

You could try:

net getlocalsid

to find out what your SID is supposed to be.  Then verify that you have set
that correctyl in your smbldap.conf file for the Idealx tools.

Also, I am a newbie to LDAP too but shouldn't your suffixes be the full DN.
For example, instead of

ldap machine suffix = ou=Computers

shouldn't it be

ldap machine suffix = ou=Computers,o=vertusnetworks.com,dc=na

or whatever you DN is?
