Which version of Samba?

As I understand it, Samba doesn't use ldap   :-)

At compile time, support for nss_ldap can be specified - samba talks
to that for looking up users (and machines) - this requires
/etc/ldap.conf to be correct.

There are some add-on perl scripts bundled as smbldap-tools which can
be used to talk to ldap in order to create users and allow machines to
join domains.

Istr reading that SaMBa 4 will be doing things differently.
