Dear All,

I have configured ldap with uid='some numeric' instead of uid=username

like that;

dn: uid=102220,ou=User,dc=example,dc=com
uid: 102220
username: test1
cn: Test Account
objectClass: inetOrgPerson
objectClass: posixAccount
objectClass: top
objectClass: shadowAccount
objectClass: sambaSamAccount
mail: test1 at cdac.in
shadowLastChange: 15587
loginShell: /bin/bash
uidNumber: 5345
gidNumber: 5345
homeDirectory: /home/test1
userPassword: {SSHA256}v7vlA8YYjJ27IbPQQa8eaChdHFcnw==
sambaPwdLastSet: 1473165911
sambaLMPassword: 7e58f6a33f8b3ef68ef354180a3a1da7
sambaSID: S-1-5-21-4079184197-2446238136-3299756537-1008
sambaAcctFlags: [UX         ]
sambaNTPassword: 0242A7FEC5CD294F916925766089E573

when I configured samba with ldap backend then samba is not able to get 
user information (because samba always search attribute uid=numeric), but 
when I replace uid=username (uid=test1 instead of uid=102220) it works and 
authenticate successful.

As I have 3000+ users in ldap and it is not possible to change to all user 
settings, request to you kindly give me some clue to find out the 
solution, I will highly obliged for the same.


Thanks & Regards,

Arun Kumar Gupta
