samba: removal of "ldap ssl ads" smb.conf option

Solution Verified - Updated -


The smb.conf option ldap ssl ads to use LDAP over TLS for samba servers integrated into an Active Directory domain was deprecated already with samba v4.8 and has been removed upstream. The option will eventually be removed in future versions of samba shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux and it's strongly recommended to not use it anymore.
