Hi Eric,

This line here looks like the interesting bit to me.

It looks like the useradd script is doing an anonymous bind, which is 
interesting since you mentioned that you used the populate script which 
should be using the same bind settings. have you reset any passwords? 
changed any acls? I would double check the bind DN and password in the 
smbldap-tools config.
