Not quite! The Samba schema has changed over time. Samba 2.x, 3.0.0-3.0.5, 
3.0.6-current are different schemas. Not everyone is using the latest version 
of Samba: In fact, over 60% of the Samba installed base is at least one 
generation out of date!

I do not want to sound like I am nit-picking, but this is an important point. 
You must use the version of the schema that matches your version of Samba.
