No clue, sorry. Upstream Samba does not have a lwopen idmap
backend, so this must be an addition by Likewise to a
modified version of Samba. Samba has the idmap_adex and
idmap_hash backends, which were contributed by Likewise
(correct me if I'm wrong here), but no lwopen backend.
Please contact Likewise for more support on this.
