This is clearly stated in the documentation.  Sample files are provided.

The documentation also talks alot about using the getent command to test the
ldap configuration.

Until the getent passwd and getent group commands work, there is little to
be gained by moving forward.

Incorrect configuration of nss_ldap is perhaps the most common reason for
Samba authentication to fail.
