Yes the script works fine. The machine will be created in ldap but 
without any samba attributes (no sid,..).

I also allready tried just to comment the parameter "algorithmic rid 
base = 5000". But if i do that samba doesn't start anymore. The log 
reportes, that i changed that parameter and after that core dump:

[2008/05/28 09:55:03, 0] passdb/pdb_ldap.c:pdb_init_ldapsam(5733)
   The value of 'algorithmic RID base' has changed since the LDAP
   database was initialised.  Aborting.

Btw, it don't realy know why need this parameter. I thought the 
association between UID and SID happends in ldap.
