I have seen this problem posted several times and the common answer doesn't seem to be doing it for me.
Here's the error:

- -----------END CONFIGURATION-------------------
I mapped the ldap machine suffix to ou=Users rather then ou=Computers because of previous message on the mailing list which
suggested there was a bug in Samba3. It doesn't seem to work either way, as it results in the exact same error message. My LDAP
directory layed out with the basic Users, Computers, Groups organizational units in existance.
I am running on a Ubuntu Dapper server:
openldap (slapd) 2.2.26-5
Any input or help is greatly appreciated. Thanks,
