Dear all,

I have setup a samba PDC on a debian lenny machine and everything works fine.
Recently, i want to integrate Samba with LDAP. When I use smbldap-populate,
the corresponding structures are created in the LDAP tree, however,
the unix groups
are not created at all! smbldap-populate did not complaint anything.

I have tested by using smbldap-useradd. The same problem appears. What are the
possible reasons for this?

Thanks in advance.

Tc Chung
