Package: samba
Version: 2:4.1.17+dfsg-2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Access control, valid user = +group, can't work when using with open LDAP, while it works fine with /etc/group.
For examples, user=nomura is a member of group named manager and mount [testmanager] from another debian jessie machine. It shows "mount error(13): Permission denied ".
   comment = Testmanager
   path = /public/storage/testmanager
   directory mask = 0770
   force create mode = 0770
   create mask = 0770
   browseable = no
   writable = yes
   valid users = +manager
   nt acl support = no

testmachine at root:~# smbldap-groupshow manager
dn: cn=manager,ou=Groups,dc=examples,dc=com
objectClass: posixGroup,sambaGroupMapping
sambaSID: S-1-5-21-1701303421-278908xx-1134356543xxx
cn: manager
gidNumber: 3000
sambaGroupType: 2
displayName: manager
memberUid: nomura,aaaaaa,bbbbbb,cccccc,dddd,eeeeeee

I checked the same case with /etc/passwd and /etc/group on another jessie server, and found it works fine.

In addtion, replacing "valid users = +manager" by "valid users = nomura" avoids the problem, works fine.
