it is only a standalone server, no sid/gid (mapping) needed. All users
and groups are local (passwd/groups) maintained.
We only want to authenticate the users against the ldap server
(openDJ). No Active Directory is used.
But if I configure, there are a lot (to much) ldap searches/request,
that only waste time and cpu. The requesting smbd process does not get
back a usable (empty) result. So i think, then (after ldap search) the
smbd process asks the system and get the proper information.
Samba is running well in this configuration.
I'm looking for a way to disable this ldap request, because at the
moment are only a few files on the server, but I want migrate Windows
file servers on it. So I'm afraid that the performance of the samba
will go down and my ldap server will collapse.
