So then, do you get POSIX and Samba accounts in the LDAP, and then the
/etc/passwd is also used?
What I really want is to move smbpasswd users to LDAP, but we have
process that interact with /etc/passwd, but I would like LDAP to be only
used by Samba. I suppose if nsswitch did not say to use LDAP, ssh/etc.
would not check LDAP for user logins?
