I expect that I will have moved on to something else by tomorrow night.

Setup this system this afternoon - I am getting really good at this.

CentOS 4 (nice) - already got
postfix/cyrus/horde/openldap/bind/dhcp/samba stuff set up and all I need
to do is to be able to vampire the old NT4 PDC so I can do it again on
Saturday morning early so I can spend the day migrating profile/data.

I can't leave it until Friday - it will worry me to no end that I won't
get it done on Saturday.

Seemed to me a simple thing. Smbldap-tools docs said if you need to,
just populate ldap with the cn=NextFreeUnixId,...

so I did - and so it failed

The ldap core is there...(sambaDomainName), SID is set, system is joined
to PDC, smb.conf is set to domain master = no, it no workee.
