suggestion for minor improvement of the smb.conf manpage in the context
of the 'idmap backend' parameter. At least as of v3.0.22 the manpage says:
Finally, using the idmap_ad module, the UID and GID can directly be
retrieved from an Active Directory LDAP Server that supports an
RFC2307 compliant LDAP schema. idmap_ad supports "Services for Unix"
(SFU) version 2.x and 3.0.
[ snip ]
Example: idmap backend = idmap_ad
All the examples I found on the internet of how to use this show the
value being simply 'ad', as opposed to 'idmap_ad'. I like 'ad' better
because it is not redundant. Regardless, the man page
should be updated to state the legal possible values. If both
'idmap_ad' and 'ad' are legal, then mention them both. If only 'ad' is
legal, then fix the man page.
