recently I got my ldap server up an running and now I'd like to start to
use it with our 600-user-300-windows-pc samba server.

(Centos 5.4, samba-3.0.33-3.28, openldap-2.3.43, smbldap-tools-0.9.5-)

So I started to read the samba how to, some books, a lot of postings and
finaly tried first the smbldap-tools from idealx.

After that I tried the Ldapsam:Editposix as this is the build in and may
be "simpler" way to set up/manage the samba server.

But as a novice in samba+ldap I'm faced with some questions and did not
find any answers yet, because most docs start with a fresh set up and
don't do a migration.

After importing my posix accounts into ldap and populating the basic
tree for samba I was able to migrate the sambapasswd too and finaly my
windows users can log in. (This was the smbldap-tools-way)

Doing this the Ldapsam:Editposix-way, something with the users main
group mapping(?) fails. (1)

May be somewone can poit me to a good "migrating to Ldapsam:Editposix
how tos"? Or can help my in an other way? I can provide my config in
detail and describe the steps I did.

One importend question for me too is, should I go the Ldapsam:Editposix
way or smbldap-tool-way? Any suggestions?

Thanks a lot and best regards,
