Let's keep this on the list please

got something against documentation?


of course it talks directly to ldap 
- that's why you configure it in smb.conf
- if you configure client first whether on samba machine or not, you
should be able to confirm settings that you ultimately use in smb.conf
and can query the information that ldap returns so you aren't surprised
or left groping for answers.
