Very useful. I think the perl is good solution and the use of the
Mozilla::LDAP or Net::LDAPapi is better than call a ldap* binaries (and
more faster too). We have a perl script but for the moment manage only a
groups. Also we have another scrip for insert the unix passwd in
the userpassword:{crypt}<passwd>, but this is another question.
If the script can use the user/groups maps or similar (/etc/group
/etc/passwd) will be perfect...
May the bin/smbpasswd will be called from the script?

We can help with the perl stuff.
