Since I am trying to learn both Samba3 & OpenLDAP 2.1.x, I found the
IDEALx tools very useful, but needing some modifications to work.  Here
is my post to the IDEALx mailinglist - maybe it's helpful to someone in
here (NOTE: I'm using the IDEALx tools from CVS since those are the only
ones that work with Samba3 yet):

        I've modified the Samba tools to work with OpenLDAP 2.1.x which
        is more strict with schema standards.  If this has already been
        addressed in this mailing list, my apologies.  
        I'm working with the CVS version of the IDEALx tools which have
        been modified to work with Samba3.  In order for the tools to
        work with OpenLDAP 2.1.x line 262 (or thereabouts) needs to be
        modified to include the relevant superior objectclasses to
        inetOrgPerson as follows:
        'objectclass' => ['top', 'person', 'organizationalPerson',
        'inetOrgPerson', 'posixAccount'],
        Not sure if there is a better way to do this so that the IDEALx
        tools discern whether OpenLDAP 2.1.x is running or OpenLDAP
        2.0.x and modify the line accordingly.  Maybe it does not matter
        since 'top', 'person', 'organizationalPerson' do not require any
        new attributes that aren't already provided for ('sn' & 'cn').
        Anyhow, I'll leave it to the coders to figure out the best way
        to approach this.  For me, thanks for the great tools!  I look
        forward to the next final release!
