I am not saying that at all, what I am saying is, for all intents and
purposes, your smb.conf is for a PDC, yet you have :


in smb.conf.

I think you need to consider just what you require, a PDC or a
standalone server and then set up Samba & ldap accordingly.

If you want/need a standalone server, then you do not need things like
'Domain Users' etc, because your server will not be part of a domain.
