What about with:

$ /usr/local/samba/bin/wbinfo -u

When I run that against a new Samba4 installation after running
setup/provision and then creating a user with "net newuser" I get

$ /usr/local/samba/bin/wbinfo -u

The packages necessary for the ldapsearch are the OpenLDAP client
utilities and the SASL GSSAPI mechanism.  On Ubuntu these are
ldap-utils and either libsasl2-modules-gssapi-heimdal or
libsasl2-modules-gssapi-mit.  I don't know what they are on OpenSUSE.

You probably want to use the "net" command and "wbinfo" etc., rather
than ldbsearch or ldapsearch.  Or you can use the GUI tools from a
Windows machine as mentioned on the Samba4 HOWTO.
