I posted a few days ago that I was having trouble getting samba 3.0.14a to
work with ldap.  I switched up to 3.0.15pre2 and had much the same
trouble.  I have been following the instructions in
http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/Samba-Guide.pdf, but I am still having

Here is what happens when i run smbldap-populate:

mercury:/usr/local/samba/sbin# ./smldap-populate -a root -k 0 -m 0
Populating LDAP directory for domain TESTNET
(using builtin directory structure)

Use of uninitialized value in string ne at ./smbldap-populate line 165
Use of uninitialized value in concactenation (.) or string at
./smbldap-populate line 170
entry o=ssfsnet already exist.
adding new entry: ou=People,o=ssfsnet
adding new entry: ou=Groups,o=ssfsnet
adding new entry: ou=Computers,o=ssfsnet
Can't call method "dn" on an undefined value at ./smbldap-populate line
442, <GEN1> line 6.

I can't figure out what is wrong...The smb.conf is taken straight from the
documentation and the smbldap tools should be properly configured.  Every
thing is "by the book" but I still can't seem to get it working.  Could
somebody perhaps post somewhere a working smb.conf and perhaps a slapcat
dump (minus users, of course) or even a working smbldap.conf?  I know I'm
probably just missing something stupid, but I am out of ideas

Thanks in advance,
