Thanks Adam,
populating and using smbpasswd -a solved the problem, but now I'm a bit 
confused: if I want to change my users' info (password, etc) I need to use 
the smbldap-xxx scripts and that will change both the samba and ldap (unix) 
information? In other ways, the needing for a smbpasswd -a is required only 
as "init" step, or each time I change a password I need to use again 
smbpasswd? Moreover, what happens if I change a password using smbpasswd and 
not the smbldap-xxx? The samba account becomes unaligned with the ldap one?
