LDAP Changes

If "ldap user suffix" or "ldap machine suffix" are defined in
smb.conf, all user-accounts must reside below the user suffix,
and all machine and inter-domain trust-accounts must be located
below the machine suffix.  Previous Samba releases would fall
back to searching the 'ldap suffix' in some cases.

Privilege Model

Samba 3.0.11 supports the following assignable rights

SeMachineAccountPrivilege  Add machines to domain
SePrintOperatorPrivilege   Manage printers
SeAddUsersPrivilege        Add users and groups to the domain
SeRemoteShutdownPrivilege  Force shutdown from a remote system
SeDiskOperatorPrivilege    Manage disk shares

These rights can be assigned to arbitrary users or groups
via the 'net rpc rights grant/revoke' command.  More details
