So you solved your problems finally?

I suppose with "add custom attributes" you mean you want to write your
own schema-file and have the users use these new objectClass(es) and
attributes. Well, then just use LDAP-commands to assign them to them.
That's nothing Samba-specific...

(Don't ask me how to apply a specific LDAP-command such as ldapmodify to
a perhaps large subset of all LDAP entries ... I just don't know that
yet either.)
