Where can I look to understand what is going ?Is it simply possible to just have a samba standalone which just use LDAP for authentication ?

Hi, your English isn't that bad, the same cannot be said for your email 
client :-)

Once I deciphered your email, it seems that you are trying to run a 
standalone server, if this is correct, why have you got this line in 

  domain logons = yes

You also say that your standalone server has the same SID as the domain, 
what domain ?

There is also this:

Enter user.ldap's password:session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE

Have you run 'smbpasswd -w PASSWORD'
