Then my question is this: is Samba 3, using ldapsam_compat for the passdb backend, a drop-in replacement for 2.2.x using LDAP? More specifically, if I've got a 2.2.x+LDAP installation up and running now, will I have to make any LDAP changes to make everything work? Should I be focusing on my smb.conf and leaving my back-end directory alone, or are some LDAP changes simply inevitable?

The documentation I've read would make it seem that 3.x + ldapsam_compat makes a great drop-in replacement, but I haven't found that to be the case in practice.
