hi list,

I tried to setup samba/winbind server with the idmap ldap backend, and
I think the samba howto is wrong on that part :
As described in the howto it couldn't work :
passwd: files ldap
shadow: files ldap
group:  files ldap
hosts:  files wins

the correct values are :

passwd: files winbind
shadow: files winbind
group:  files winbind
hosts:  files wins

because the ldap tree filled by winbind contains only the SID to
id/gid informations not the uid informations so the nss_ldap search
will failed.
