I wrote a note about the use the ldif files as provided in the docs, 
because an structural object *must* be present with the new samba schema 
and the strong schema checking in the new openldap (2.1.3).


The command "bin/smbpasswd -a <user>" is useless with the openldap 2.1.3 
unless an account exists because the samba_2_2 code don't supply an 
structural object:

ldap_search_one_user: searching 
ldap_search_one_user: searching for:[uid=ccourse]
Adding new user
Setting entry for user: ccourse
failed to modify user with uid = ccourse with: Object class violation
         no structural object classes provided
Failed to add entry for user ccourse.
Failed to modify password entry for user ccourse
