Here is what I have on the PDC

sysserv0 ~ # cat /etc/samba/smb-ldap.conf
#This file contains only the ldap configuration for samba
        passdb backend = ldapsam:"ldap://sysserv0.radimg.pitt.edu
        ldap ssl = false
        ldap admin dn = "cn=Manager,dc=radimg,dc=pitt,dc=edu"
        ldap user suffix = ou=People
        ldap delete dn = yes
        ldap machine suffix = ou=Hosts
        ldap group suffix = ou=Groups
        ldap suffix = dc=radimg,dc=pitt,dc=edu

#       ldap debug level = 1
#       ldap debug threshold = 5

        ldapsam:editposix = yes
        ldap passwd sync = yes
