samba 4 does not use external ldap anymore. Instead it uses his own ldap
To administrate ADS you can use ads admin tool from Microsoft or I think
samba-tool or ldbedit.

We use samba-ldap mainly for single sign on. I'd like to have a go at 
Samba 4. I currently have v3 with ldap. Is openldap similar to the ldap 
in Samba 4 or will I have to relearn it?

Would it be possible for folk like me (little or no windows experience) 
to have some more information on Samba 4? Screenshots of what AD looks 
like on a Windows server would be great. I know these are available 
elsewhere but their explanations are ridden with windows jargon and 
leave Samba admins on Linux out in the cold.

Thanks for reading.
