PS. issuing the following command after changing the ldap admin dn
entry in smb.conf gives me this error:
root at fileserver:/install/openldap-2.1.19# smbpasswd -a gerrit
New SMB password:
Retype new SMB password:
failed to add domain dn= sambaDomainName=UNETIX,dc=unetix,dc=nl with: Internal 
(implementation specific) error
        index generation failed
Adding domain info for UNETIX failed with NT_STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL
Failed to initialise SAM_ACCOUNT for user gerrit.
Failed to modify password entry for user gerrit

What may be causing this?
