one problem is that, by design, as a domain member, it makes us behave different compared to a Windows system. Hic sunt dracones.

Another thing that a customer has just been bitten by, was a subtle bug in winbindd's idmap cache that resulted in all xid2sid requests going through the idmap backend, iow winbindd issued LDAP requests. With a few thousand users, things came to a grinding halt.


Patch just landed upstream.
