cn=administrator,cn=users,dc=your,dc=realm or even
administrator at YOUR.REALM (but your client may impose a client-side
restriction preventing using this Microsoft extension).
One client that we know works is phpLDAPadmin (runs as php scripts on
your samba server), and we generate a configuration file for it as part
of our provision.
