Hi Paul, thanks for your advice.
I succeded in avoiding "password server  is not connected" introducing 
"security=domain" instead of "security=server" and 2.2.12.
About our choice on samba2 vs 3: compiling 3.x with Openldap was my 
first try but I encurred in the known problem on supplemtary groups 
documented on https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=943 and
  This can be avoided compiling with Sun/Netscape Ldap lib, and this was 
smoothful for me only with samba2 (and Sun DS 5.2).
