I found everything easier to manage if I split all the Samba stuff off
into its own hierarchy. I have an ou=Samba for all Samba related stuff,
as it was really beginning to clutter up my main ou=People tree. This
caused a bit of a problem for me though, as I'm using LDAP also for my
UNIX authentication and when someone tries to login via Samba and the PAM
module finds two entries with uid=myer (one in ou=People and one in
ou=Samba), it fails the login.
I would vote for keeping Samba separate though, simply because it makes
management a bit easier and it doesn't clutter your entries as much.
