Hello all,

at the moment we are using samba 3.6.6 as pure fileserver  on Debian
Wheezy with external company-wide OpenLDAP as "passdb backend"
(ldapsam). We want to use Debian Jessie, which have samba4 in stock,
unfortunately out setup doesn't work with Samba4 anymore

I've read somewhere that Samba4 only works with internal LDAP server,
is it correct? Does it mean, our setup with just using Samba as
fileserver (SMB) with external OpenLDAP ist no more possible?
