 it seems like you are getting plenty of help and in the process the person
who is helping you is reinventing the wheel.  I know how hard it is getting
to grips with all the things that go into making a successful samba domain

The answer to the above is that you use some scripts to add users to the
ldap backend.  The smbldap-tools, despite what Tony Earnshaw thinks of them,
work fine in the majority of situations.  Particularly the 8.9 series.
Please read the guide to see how to put it all together.
