it looks like there is a problem in your config file (
smbldap-tools.conf ). you should double-check syntax and verify proper

don't know if it's relevant but according to my installation of
smbldap-tools from tgz, configuration files should be in
/etc/smbldap-tools and debian package don't create this directory.

you should check /usr/share/doc/smbldap-tools/README.Debian.gz for
proper install instruction

apparently variable hostname is not initialized.

hope this help

BTW i use tgz version of smbldap-tools on debian, they are more
up-to-date, and aparently better packaged.
