[Samba] LDAP - adding info to database

The problem I ran into was the the inetOrgPerson objectClass required a
sn attribute but the samba schema would not allow it. I added it as a
allowed attribute and added the objectClass then and all is well.

Work's fine here. Just use the inetOrgPerson-Attributes. On the
OpenLDAP-FAQ-Site you can find some informations about this.

We use LDAP as source for Samba-Accounts, Posix-Accounts, addressbook
and for IMAP/POP-Accounts, mailquotas and mail- & forwarding-addresses
