samba services stops automatically

Dear Experts:

I have setup suse enterprise linux 11 to work as samba domain controller with password backend as ldap as guest  VM on ESXi5.0. able to join systems on lan and create the users for all these operations using Yast from GUI,

problem is very often samba share gets disconnected for all and their home directories will be disconnected then manually should access the samba server from yast and run it i mean restarting the samba services once this is done all the shares and home directories are reconnected.
dns resolve has no issues as iam running ddns on one of the ubuntu box for all the hosts and no issues here.
Attached the samba configuration file for your reference, please help to resolve this issue thanks in advance.

Hi!

Check this out: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/OpenLDAP-SambaPDC-OrgInfo-Posix

Jump to the section: "Index the LDAP database for speed".
Update the Index Definitions and edit the file /etc/ldap/slapd.conf in the database definitions section (ie. after the first database directive).
Following this, stop the LDAP server, run slapindex, and restart the LDAP server.

Read the link for commands to do this.

Regards, Tobias
