Hi all,

I'm looking now for day's for this problem but i don't find the solution.
I have tried several solutions/setup like:

I have a working ldap server for my mail-server and want to extend this to
a samba server also.

when a user connect (without success) I see this error in the logs:

Nov 28 09:24:44 app-04 smbd[11865]: [2013/11/28 09:24:44.700295,  0]

Nov 28 09:24:44 app-04 smbd[11865]:   Failed to find a Unix account for
testcheck_sam_security: make_server_info_sam() failed with

Running getent passwd show me all the ldap users

running pdbedit -L -v

Unix username:        test

NT username:          test

Account Flags:        [U          ]

User SID:             S-1-5-21-3736572231-1434995096-3231833993-3012

Primary Group SID:    S-1-5-21-3736572231-1434995096-3231833993-513


I have populated the ldap through smbldap-populate.

smbldap-usershow test give's also the right information.

[root at xxx samba]# id test

uid=1006(test) gid=503(samba) groups=503(samba),513(Domain Users)

Help would be more than welcome.
