Every machine with "passdb backend = ldapsam" creates its
own entry, as every machine has its own user database. This
is very much like the local SAM on Windows workstations
where you can log in as local administrator. This won't
happen if you don't set "passdb backend = ldapsam" and join
the servers into the domain.
