Then that is your problem, in a sense. While posix accounts are created
wherever you tell idealx to make them, the system is having trouble
finding them. Samba is limited to the environment it is running in, in
that it uses the getpwnam call (somebody tuna slap me if I'm using the
wrong call here) and that searches under ou=People unless you've
That being said you either need to reconfigure the passwd (and maybe
shadow) line in your ldap.conf file or start storing everything in
ou=People. If you're not doing anything else with ldap that you don't
want machine accounts showing up in then I'd suggest the latter route.

But is it modified to include the sambaSamAccount object class and
requred attributes? My guess is no.
