	You are looking for smbldap-tools.

	Yes, they are. But it is going to be easier and safer if you
use smbldap-tools. ;)

	Kind of. You should check 'net groupmap'.

	Peter, check the [1]Samba HOWTO and the [2]Samba By Example.
You should also check [3]Samba LDAP HOWTO from Ignacio Coupeau, it is
a little bit out-of-date, but has some cool info.

  1. http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-HOWTO-Collection/
  2. http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-Guide/
  3. http://www.unav.es/cti/ldap-smb/smb-ldap-3-howto.html

	The above documentation has examples and nice information
about migration scenarios, configuration and LDAP parameters, if
you feel like something is missing in the documentation, please
let us know.
