I am probably not saying anything that you don't already know, but I suggest
reviewing all parts of the guide that deal with running the smbldap tools. I
have smbldap-tools-0.8.8-1 and the smbldap-populate script doesn't produce the
same output as what is shown in the guide (which is based on an earlier version
of smbldap-tools).

The 0.8.8-1 version of smbldap-populate doesn't warn about having to modify smbldap.conf
for "sambaDomainName=MEGANET2,dc=abmas,dc=biz" and it doesn't output the following:

adding new entry: ou=Idmap,dc=abmas,dc=biz
adding new entry: sambaDomainName=MEGANET2,dc=abmas,dc=biz

The sambaDomainName entry is added if one modifies smbldap.conf before running
smbldap-populate but still no ou=Idmap which has to be done by hand as specified
in the guide.

The smbldap-tools are indispensible to non-gurus in getting something going but
they seem to change a lot from version to version. Maybe the changes are to
accommodate how the IDEALX guys set up a PDC+LDAP Samba server.
