It still add's the user .. but gives "user not found" error in XP dialog.

ok .. some more information I found .. 

If I add a user samba gives me this : 

Authentication for user [ubb] -> [ubb] FAILED with error NT_STATUS_NO_SUCH_USER

so PDC denies it .. but I can use PAM fine to see the user switch in posix as well. 

it seems that samba is not connecting correclty to the ldap server .. 

ok .... got it working .. turned out to be my ldap.conf .. 

nss_base_passwd         dc=IDEALX,dc=ORG?sub
nss_base_shadow         dc=IDEALX,dc=ORG?sub
nss_base_group          ou=Groups,dc=IDEALX,dc=ORG?one

instead of 

nss_base_passwd         ou=Users,dc=IDEALX,dc=ORG?one
nss_base_shadow         ou=Users,dc=IDEALX,dc=ORG?one
nss_base_group          ou=Groups,dc=IDEALX,dc=ORG?one

I'll see just waht I did... and fix from there ...

still can't log in after adding machine tho ;P:
