  I have a file server that I authenticate against LDAP/Samba.  The 
smb.conf looks something like this...(which of course does not include 
the shares section of the config...)  This configuration assumes using 
nss_ldap (for getting user accounts) and POSIX ACL's for permissions 
using getfacl and setfacl.

         log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
         passdb backend = ldapsam:ldap://<ip address>
         ldap suffix = <ldap suffix>
         ldap machine suffix = ou=Machine
         ldap user suffix = ou=People
         ldap group suffix = ou=Group
         ldap idmap suffix = ou=IdMap
         ldap admin dn = <ldap dn to connect as>
         show add printer wizard = No
         dns proxy = No
         cups options = raw
         server string = File Server
         password server = SERVER1 SERVER2
         domain logons = no
         domain master = no
         workgroup = CORPDOM
         printcap name = cups
         security = DOMAIN
         preferred master = No
         max log size = 50
         disable spoolss = Yes
