If you don't happen to have your slapd providing ldaps only (and as your
Samba-setup uses non-encrypted LDAP), then your best bet is to check the
slapd-log/-debug-output: Does Samba connect to the LDAP-server? What
does it (Samba) want? What does the LDAP-server think of it? etc...

Sorry, I'm running out of ideas...
