i plan to mass creat user in ldap to use with samba

I tried with ldiff like the structure below, the user is created but no 
home directory is created, user in not member on any groups.
1) how to do with ldiff file to put a user member of a group ?

So i plan to use smbldap-useradd => home drectorie is created with the 
appropriated rights, user is member of "Domain Users" : Great !
My goal is to creat a script that will,  for each user in a text file, 
call smbldap-useradd. I think that this won't be too difficult (any hint 
will be apreciated)
My problem is that i also want to generate a password with 
smbldap-passwd. But this script doesn't accept any parameters. It 
prompts for a password ...
2) Is there a solution to avoid this problem so that i also can generate 
mass user password ?


Here's my ldiff :
