> 1) how to do with ldiff file to put a user member of a group ?
You have the gid specified so that will get your primary group, adding
secondary groups is not as easy though. The secondary groups you are a
member of is stored in the group, via the multi-value property
memberUID. You'll have to ldapmodify the groups you want to be a member
of with the appropriate member's uid.

You could pipe your script, depending on the language, into the
smbpasswd command. I believe Jerry has posted something like this for a
echo $pass $pass > smbpasswd -a $username
Also, you may want to leave off your samba parameters in the ldif, they
will get added by the smbpasswd command.
