[Samba] Samba and LDAP Base DN

Right now, I have all of my Samba stuff under ou=corp,dc=mycompany,dc=com.  I 
have it this way because there used to also be ou=furn,dc=mycompany,dc=com 
with a different domain.  Now that I only have one domain, I would like to 
move everything to dc=mycompany,dc=com.  So I copy all of the subentries of 
ou=corp (ou=computers, ou=people, ou=grooups, and the sambaDomainName 
entries) to dc=mycompany,dc=com.  I change the /etc/ldap.conf files to all 
point to the new OU.  Perfect.  However when I change the baseDN in my 
smb.conf, all of a sudden I cannot authenticate.  Even when doing smbcontrol 
smbd reload-config.  The only thing I can figure is that it might be doing a 
'sub' search and finding two entries for my user, because I left the 
'ou=corp' DN as it was.  Is it that, or is there something else I have to do 
in order to restructure my LDAP tree?
