Thanks guys for your help so quickly, who says open source support is 
rubbish ;)


I came in this morning and....

Our LDAP server is now running at a load average of 0.4-9 with slapd at 
10-30% :) the lastweek its been at a load average of 16-23 slapd at 98% :(

Now we have no LDAP queries of "filter=(objectclass=posixaccount)" which 
was what was killing our LDAP server as it was trying to get over 50,000 
entries. :) every few minutes.

Having ldapsam:trusted = yes has greatly  improved our proformance :) 
and my teams worry :)

The University of Sunderland (UK) are commited to using open source 
software.  We in the small IT Systems Team would like to try and get the 
University to make a donation to the Samba Project, how would we go 
about this if its possible?
