Dear Jeremy and samba team, when I move my nas to AD mode I see the smb.conf as shown below.
what is use of passdb backend here ?, when anybody try to authenticate to samba it uses the passdb_winbind.so and contacts the password server to verify login/password.
attached complete smb.conf

password server=
security= ADS

passdb backend= smbpasswd
