Where? How?

Mine is. It doesn't needs anything else.

Was suggested one, try smbldap-passwd -u from command line and inside 
samba and see if it works, if it works alone theres a possibility that 
your samba config has a problem if it doesn't works even outside samba, 
it doesn't have anything to do with samba, as it runs alone, its a 
simple perl script that binds to ldap directly.

If you conclude that the problem is with samba you can start to raise 
the log level, if its not, its useless and maybe you should look at your 
ldap acls.

So, it depends, I didnt understood what works and what doesn't and in 
which situation now.
