Quoting from the Samba 3.3.0 release notes:
Winbind idmap backend changes
The idmap configuration has changed with version 3.3 to something that
allows a smoother upgrade path from pre-3.0.25 configurations that use
"idmap backend". The reason for this change is that to many, also to
Samba developers, the 3.0.25 style configuration with "idmap config"
turned out to be very complex. Version 3.3 no longer deprecates the
"idmap backend" parameter, instead with "idmap backend" the default
idmap backend is specified.
Accordingly, the "idmap config : default = yes" setting is no longer
being looked at.
The alloc backend defaults to the default backend, which should be able
to allocate IDs. In the default distribution the tdb and ldap backends
can allocate, the ad and rid backends can not. The idmap alloc range is
now being set with the "old" parameters "idmap uid" and "idmap gid". The
"idmap domains" parameter has been removed.
