[Samba] LDAP backend: "sambaDomain" object not created.

I have problems when adding a new user to a fresh installed Samba+LDAP.

Somewhere I read that the "sambaDomain" object is created automatically 
when samba first starts. Well, it seems the object is not created, and I 
find no log regarding to the issue when samba starts.

This is the log I get when trying to add a new user.

In the mail archive, I found several people asking for this problem, but 
I didn't find any solution.
