I had note the changes in samba 3.6.x, I have a DOMAIN with Samba 3.5.x, I
have 3 servers and I start updating my OS Centos to the latest 5.9, there I
note this changes.

Now I have search around the globe for the doc that show us how to make the

But is only in maillist or forums.

What I understand is this:

idmap uid
idmap gid
idmap range ===> In my smb,conf I don't have this settings but I understand
that is this value:
10000-20000 right?

Are replace by:

idmap config * : range
idmap config * : backend

Now, how my setup will have to be?
idmap config * : ldap
idmap config * : 10000-20000

Now I have other warning that samba 3.5.x won't complain about:

WARNING: The setting 'security=domain' should NOT be combined with the
'password server' parameter.

What problem with this one?

Thanks for your time.

LIving the dream...
