Not enough information to give a meaningful answer.

1 - signorseal settings applicable to Samba 2.x not 3.x

2 - logs?  why would you think that /var/log/samba/smbd.log,
/var/log/samba/log.nmbd, /var/log/samba/ip.of.connecting.system wouldn't
give you real clues to what's going on?

3 - migrate? as in net rpc vampire? - how certain are you that LDAP is
working? Does LDAP handle linux login? Are you logging ldap connections

4 - you seem to have not stated the required - I have read the 'how-to'
at <http://us1.samba.org/samba/docs/man/>

5 - net getlocalsid  /  ldapsearch -x -h localhost -b 'base-of-ldap'
'(cn=Domain User)'   #do they sid portions match?
