If you have the smbldap-tools configured properly with the right master 
and slave set, then adding machines is not a problem.  Changing 
passwords is also not a problem provided you have LDAP referrals set up 
properly.  Setting up referrals is really more of a question for the 
openldap folks, and probably covered in the setup guide at openldap.
