All these entries are the one that Apple says you need to import into MS A/D for managing Macs via GPO, and formatted exactly as Apple recommends. It would be great to get this working with Samba 4. I know your priority is to make the Microsoft users happy first, but Apple is definitely making in-roads into Windows dominated corporate networks, and all those administrators would be thrilled to be able to manage their Macs with GPO. Extending MS A/D schema is often something Windows admins don't want to do, but having the option to extend a Samba 4 A/D schema that works in their Windows A/D environment would be a big score for everyone :).

Can you add these with ldbadd or ldbmodify and see if we produce a more
useful error that phpLdapAdmin is loosing?
