You must have missed the ou=Computers discussion then, it comes up about

> passdb backend = ldapsam:ldap://smbtest.soil.ncsu.edu:389
> ldap suffix = dc=soil,dc=ncsu,dc=edu
> ldap admin dn = cn=Manager,dc=soil,dc=ncsu,dc=edu
> ldap delete dn = no
> ldap user suffix = ou=People
> ldap group suffix = ou=Groups
> ldap machine suffix = ou=Computers
change this to ou=People or do one of the workarounds people have
suggested, those being to reconfigure your nss library to search to a
point in your ldap structure that contains both ou=People and
ou=Computers (dc=soil,dc=ncsu,dc=edu). I guess that's the only
suggested one, but I've thought about a couple others, one being to make
an ou=Accounts which would contain aliases to ou=People and
ou=Computers, but I haven't tested it yet...
