Environment is Samba as a PDC, OpenLDAP backend, with
smbldap-tools providing the scripts to manipulate the data.

What are the recommended/mandated organizational units (OU=)
for user, computer, group info.

I'm pretty sure that groups go in ou=Groups, but I am confused
about where user and computer data goes.

I have seen ou=People, ou=Computers, and ou=Users in various places.
Which is it and why?
