[Samba] Fwd: RE: Query regarding LDAP

Hi All,

We currently have our AD on Windows Server 2008 setup to work with Samba 
as a file share.

I noticed on our event logs in Windows that we are getting warnings 
about a client performing LDAP binds without signing or using clear text 
LDAP. After enabling the logging for LDAP i have found this to be our 
Samba server performing these requests.

I know how to solve the issue so that our Windows server will reject 
clear text LDAP bind requests but in doing so, would this affect our 
Samba server when it attempts to make a connection? If it does, can the 
LDAP settings be changed on the Samba server so that it can perform 
secure LDAP bind requests instead of clear text or unsigned?

Any help would be much appreciated.
