CIFS and LDAP in 3.2?

I'm running Alfresco 3.2 CE in Linux and I'm trying to configure CIFS. This is my alfresco-global.properties:

#
# CIFS
#—————–
cifs.enabled=true
cifs.serverName=hostname
cifs.hostannounce=true

That works just fine when I use Alfresco's internal authentication, but when I disable that and enable LDAP only, it's no longer possible to connect through CIFS, the server is not listening at all on the appropriate ports.

This is my ldap config, which works alright when it comes to authentication:
# This flag enables use of this LDAP subsystem for authentication. It may be
# that this subsytem should only be used for synchronization, in which case
# this flag should be set to false.
ldap.authentication.active=true

#
# This properties file brings together the common options for LDAP authentication rather than editing the bean definitions
#
ldap.authentication.allowGuestLogin=true
# How to map the user id entered by the user to taht passed through to LDAP
# - simple
#    - this must be a DN and would be something like
#      uid=%s,ou=People,dc=company,dc=com
# - digest
#    - usually pass through what is entered
#      %s    
ldap.authentication.userNameFormat=uid=%s,dc=domain,dc=com

# The LDAP context factory to use
ldap.authentication.java.naming.factory.initial=com.sun.jndi.ldap.LdapCtxFactory

# The URL to connect to the LDAP server
ldap.authentication.java.naming.provider.url=ldap://192.168.250.24:389

# The authentication mechanism to use
ldap.authentication.java.naming.security.authentication=simple

# Escape commas entered by the user at bindi time
# Useful when using simple authentication and the CN is part of the DN and contains commas
ldap.authentication.escapeCommasInBind=false

# Escape commas entered by the user when setting the authenticated user
# Useful when using simple authentication and the CN is part of the DN and contains commas, and the escaped \, is
# pulled in as part of an LDAP sync
# If this option is set to true it will break the default home folder provider as space names can not contain \
ldap.authentication.escapeCommasInUid=false

# Comma separated list of user names who should be considered administrators by default
ldap.authentication.defaultAdministratorUserNames=mikael@domain.com,ola@domain.com

# This flag enables use of this LDAP subsystem for user and group
# synchronization. It may be that this subsytem should only be used for
# authentication, in which case this flag should be set to false.
ldap.synchronization.active=false

# The default principal to use (only used for LDAP sync)
ldap.synchronization.java.naming.security.principal=uid=admin,dc=domain,dc=com

# The password for the default principal (only used for LDAP sync)
ldap.synchronization.java.naming.security.credentials=realTime08

# If positive, this property indicates that RFC 2696 paged results should be
# used to split query results into batches of the specified size. This
# overcomes any size limits imposed by the LDAP server.
ldap.synchronization.queryBatchSize=1000

# The query to select all objects that represent the groups to import.
ldap.synchronization.groupQuery=(objectclass\=groupOfNames)

# The query to select objects that represent the groups to import that have changed since a certain time.
ldap.synchronization.groupDifferentialQuery=(&(objectclass\=groupOfNames)(!(modifyTimestamp<\={0})))

# The query to select all objects that represent the users to import.
ldap.synchronization.personQuery=(objectclass\=inetOrgPerson)

# The query to select objects that represent the users to import that have changed since a certain time.
ldap.synchronization.personDifferentialQuery=(&(objectclass\=inetOrgPerson)(!(modifyTimestamp<\={0})))

# The group search base restricts the LDAP group query to a sub section of tree on the LDAP server.
#ldap.synchronization.groupSearchBase=dc=domain,dc=com

# The user search base restricts the LDAP user query to a sub section of tree on the LDAP server.
#ldap.synchronization.userSearchBase=dc=domain,dc=com

# The name of the operational attribute recording the last update time for a group or user.
ldap.synchronization.modifyTimestampAttributeName=modifyTimestamp

# The timestamp format. Unfortunately, this varies between directory servers.
ldap.synchronization.timestampFormat=yyyyMMddHHmmss'Z'

# The attribute name on people objects found in LDAP to use as the uid in Alfresco
ldap.synchronization.userIdAttributeName=uid

# The attribute on person objects in LDAP to map to the first name property in Alfresco
ldap.synchronization.userFirstNameAttributeName=givenName

# The attribute on person objects in LDAP to map to the last name property in Alfresco
ldap.synchronization.userLastNameAttributeName=sn

# The attribute on person objects in LDAP to map to the email property in Alfresco
ldap.synchronization.userEmailAttributeName=mail

# The attribute on person objects in LDAP to map to the organizational id  property in Alfresco
ldap.synchronization.userOrganizationalIdAttributeName=o

# The default home folder provider to use for people created via LDAP import
ldap.synchronization.defaultHomeFolderProvider=personalHomeFolderProvider

# The attribute on LDAP group objects to map to the gid property in Alfrecso
ldap.synchronization.groupIdAttributeName=cn

# The group type in LDAP
ldap.synchronization.groupType=groupOfNames

# The person type in LDAP
ldap.synchronization.personType=inetOrgPerson

# The attribute in LDAP on group objects that defines the DN for its members
ldap.synchronization.groupMemberAttributeName=member

There are no error messages in the log (it just says that the File Servers subsystem is started).

What do I need to do to get LDAP and CIFS working together?
