sounds as though you've been using tools other than smbldap to setup
user accounts, etc.

smbldap has to be configured to talk to your LDAP server if you expect
it to work.

depending upon which version of smbldap you are using, your config files
will be in various places but I think the current place
is /etc/smbldap-tools directory these days.
