That's partially the fault of your approach to the problem. You're
trying to eat all the meals for the day at once. Try to get ldap
working fine at the system level (breakfast) then once you have that
foundation laid you can start layering on dependant services like samba,
mail, apache auth, etc. (dinner, supper, midnight snack).

Nope, it only allows you to specify one. Well really you can put in more
than one, but there isn't anything to specify which is master/slave,
they're all just 'there'. That is why you need to have your LDAP
structure working first, it will handle referring the updates.
smbldap-tools will allow you to specify master and slave so that it
writes to the master directly for useradds and such.
