Make sure you have migrated the UNIX users to your LDAP backend.  PADL's
migration scripts come in very handy here.  Then, you should be able to
do something like:

	pdbedit -i tdbsam:<pathtotdb> -e ldapsam:ldap://<ldaphost>

You should already have ldapsam in your passdb backend and have test
accounts created and tested.  I think pdbedit might create posixAccount
structures for the users if they're not there, but it's probably best to
use the PADL scripts (http://www.padl.com/OSS/MigrationTools.html) to do
