Hi  Wim Bakker,

You have to make sure that LDAP is running withi out any error.
Can you do this (note: make sure there is no ACL applied on the 
slapd.conf else you wont see the out put ofyour DN):
    # ldapsearch -x -b '' -s base '(objectclass=*)' namingContexts

Is there any out put?

Can you please show me your smb.conf Globla config
