Try using 'ldap ssl = off' in your smb.conf. According to the man page
"The ldap ssl can be set to one of three values:
· Off = Never use SSL when querying the directory.
· Start_tls = Use the LDAPv3 StartTLS
(RFC2830) for communicating with the directory
· On = Use SSL on the ldaps port when
contacting the ldap
server. Only available when the
ldapsam option is specified to configure. See
Default: ldap ssl = start_tls"
Hope that helps.
