[Samba] frustration samba and LDAP

	So far, it has been my experience that learning (Open)LDAP is really no   
more difficult then learning Microsoft's Active Directory system. The   
only major difference that I see is that (Open)LDAP appears to be easier   
to recover, if there happens to be corruptions and such.

	Since you can basically create a flat text file and run a command that   
reads in that entire (Open)LDAP structure into the (Open)LDAP DB from   
that flat file.

	Of course, I am only beginning to look at (Open)LDAP, but I hope to have   
it all configured for our network soon. Unless I can think of a different   
method for keeping all of the user accounts, machine accounts and network   
information synced amongst the servers.

did someone really try to make this complicated or did it really just
turn out this way?? How can any of you use LDAP with its..
cn=xyz ou=abc godknows=whatelse  ..complicated syntax.
I thought learning command line Linux was hard....I don't want to go
through that again!

*) frustrations not withstanding...I do sincerely thank the Samba team
for a package which has served us well for 3 years.
