Hi, slox is acting as ldap smb pdc via samba old version,
it should be possible to configure you smb pdc to use
the slox ldap directory, maybe you will run in schema
problems, as slox is an enterprise product you should wait, if possible,
for an upgrade to slox by suse in which samba version 3 is included
