Hi all,

I use samba 3.0.20

the ldap paramaters into the smb.conf are:
passdb backend = ldapsam:ldap://localhost smbpasswd guest
ldap suffix = dc=univ,dc=fr
ldap machine suffix = ou=Hosts
ldap user suffix = ou=People
ldap group suffix = ou=Group
ldap idmap suffix = ou=Idmap

Into my ldap tree i've got 3 domains samba defined
some uid exists into 2 of 3 domains

(toto01 exists twice but into two differents domains)
If i use pdbedit -L -v -d 10 toto01 i've got the following thing:

smbldap_search_ext: base => [dc=univ,dc=fr], filter =>
[(&(uid=toto01)(objectclass=sambaSamAccount))], scope => [2]
ldapsam_getsampwnam: Duplicate entries for this user [toto01] Failing.

Why the smbldap_search_ext doesn't search uid only in the
ou=People,dc=univ,dc=fr branch

the filter returned by the smbldap_search_ext seems to be

How to force smb to search only the uid into the branch defined by the
ldap parameters (ou=People,dc=univ,dc=fr) ?
thanks a lot
