Can you add entries to and search the directory without any Samba
software involved?
What does "ldapsearch -x" return?
Also, try some more verbose ldapsearch-commands. Debian e.g. needs
/etc/ldap/ldap.conf to hold BASE and URI information in order for
"ldapsearch -x '(pattern)'" to succeed (AFAICT), otherwise your have to
set these options explicitly...
