Well, it is not called stable and surely there are still a lot of bugs
somewhere. We've migrated our ~700 user network from ActiveDirectory to
samba 3.0 about one month ago, and up to now there are surprisingly few
problems (3.0 is running on our Domain Controllers only, the fileservers
are still running with 2.2.7a). Since you are allready using samba+LDAP,
the upgrade should be not too hard for you. Have a look at
for more information about ldap and samba 3.0.

If you enter at windows login prompt a specific secret username and
passphrase, samba will eat your whole LDAP. ;-)
Seriously, I'm not aware of critical bugs that the samba developers keep
in samba with knowlege.
