I was following along in the Samba3 by example book.  It doesn't talk 
about an .ldif file to use for users, so I was just guessing.  
smbldap-useradd -a -m %u doesn't work for me, just gives an error when I 
run it, so I was adding a user manually from an ldif, and objectClass: 
sambaSamAccount requires sambaSID, so I was just guessing on what to 
use.  I see that now it needs to be the sambaSID of the samba server and 
then add -UID x 2 + 1000 for it to work.  is there a way to automate the 
adding of the sambaSID to the user's ldap information?
