Hi Rowland,

Fixed it, I have now the following and reset all file permissions:

	idmap config *      : backend = tdb
	idmap config *      : range = 3000-7999
	idmap config SAMDOM : backend = rid
	idmap config SAMDOM : range = 10000-999999

Unfortunately I have the lines missing on my fileserver as well, that is
a task for another year ;)
What exactly is the issue with only "idmap config *"?  If I understand
correctly I only have a server-local tdb but no functional problems?

The printer problem shows the same behaviour as before.
