[Samba] smbldap-populate failure

At least for the error after the ldaidmapsuffix, it's caused by a typo in
your smbldap-tools, smbldap.conf, missing the ou= part.
The other, may relate to another variable not beeing set in the same file.
It would help posting that file.

Subject: [Samba] smbldap-populate failure

dear list,

I'm trying to migrate nt4 to samba3, and have two issues at the moment.
First is: I'm getting two (small?) errors using smbldap-populate on my ldap
database. At first I tried ignoring this, but now also rpc net vampire
complains. (maybe because of this..?)

This is the output of smbldap-populate:
server:/usr/local/sbin # smbldap-populate
Using builtin directory structure

/usr/local/sbin/smbldap-populate line 126.

searched the archives, but unsuccessfully... :(

and later on, net vampire gives errors like:
[2005/02/03 16:51:55, 0] passdb/pdb_ldap.c:ldapsam_add_sam_account(1994)
  ldapsam_add_sam_account: failed to modify/add user with uid = ghost (dn =
[2005/02/03 16:51:56, 0] passdb/pdb_ldap.c:ldapsam_add_sam_account(1994)
  ldapsam_add_sam_account: failed to modify/add user with uid = 1219$ (dn =

Since after completion the users/machines DO exist in the database, I guess
it means failed to MODIFY.

Using samba 3.0.10-SUSE, suse 9.0, most recent idealx ldap tools.

Anyone here has an idea what is going wrong..?
