No. All groups are 1005 or less. The should be 1000 or less but the user 
has installed Acronis which has set up groups 1000-1005 which I don't 
think should be there.
All "ClearOS" LDAP groups on this system and mine begin at 63000. All of 
what I think od as the Windows built-in groups are somewhere over 
1000500 e.g:
[root at server ~]# id clearcenter
uid=1049(clearcenter) gid=63000(allusers)

That is explicitly set to No in the included /etc/samba/smb.ldap.conf. I 
am scared to change this as it is working in my system.

No. The package is not even available.

passwd:     files ldap
group:      files ldap

These are the same as my system which works
