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.
