This is probably documented somewhere very obvious but I do not seem to 
be able to find it.

Many years ago I configured my Samba server with an LDAP backend. I also 
put in the parameter 'ldap idmap suffix = ou=Idmap' in my smb.conf file 
too as per:


Amazingly enough I now have to add two more members servers, checking via 
GQ I see that the ou=Idmap tree is actually empty.

Should it be?

If not, how can I -- is there a way, even -- have it populated with the 
existing Idmaps? My users are able to login to their machines perfectly 
fine (everything is run via LDAP).
