There is an old saying "if it ain't broke, don't fix it!" LDAP is more
flexible than tdbsam and since you have it working, why switch? However,
if you insist on doing it, keep the LDAP backend until you are sure the
tdbsam backend is working.
Please note that you will likely want to switch back to LDAP at some
point, so don't say I didn't warn you! :)
