So there's no error on my side: I have no idmap lines in my smb.conf and 
since I can't add any I should live with the error/warning, right?

Is this error related to sysvolreset taking forever to run?
What about Louis/your script here 
https://github.com/thctlo/samba4/blob/master/samba-check-set-sysvol.sh ?
I know it's safer but... is it also faster? :)

Thanks again
