I have a SUSE SLES 11.1 SP1 machine as Samba master PDC with LDAP backend. In one share there are Database files for a Client-Server application. I log XP and Windows 7 machines to the local domain (example.local), the login is a little slow but works. In the client computers have an executable which opens, reads and writes the database files from the server share.
When running Samba with LDAP password backend the client application runs VERY SLOW with a maximum transfer rate of 2500 MBit per second. If disable LDAP the client app speed increases 20x, with transfer rate of >50Mbit/sec and running smoothly.
I'm doing test with just two users and two machines, so concurrency, or LDAP size shouldn't be the problem here.
LDAP, Smb.conf [global] section configuration.
What can I do? I've googled a lot, but still have no answer.
Slow smb.conf WITH LDAP
