Hello !
I've the following problem on my samba+ldap installation :
The samba server (version 3.0.28-1.el5_2.1) is running on a machine named 
luke. The ldap server runs on a machine named anakin.
Both of them seems to be setup correctly, since I can log in on the samba 
domain, but when I try to get an entry from the ldap database using the 
pdbedit command on luke, I get the following :

smbldap_open_connection: connection opened
ldap_connect_system: succesful connection to the LDAP server
The LDAP server is succesfully connected
init_sam_from_ldap: Entry found for user: david
Unix username:        david

So, there is an error with ldapsam_getsampwsid, and I don't understant what it 
means. I've searched the web, found many messages, but even if I follow the 
instructions given, I can't get rid of this message.
What can be wrong in my installation ? 
Thanks for any help provided.
