[Samba] How to use --simple-bind-dn in samba-tool

I understand that using options -H and --simple-bind-dn one could run
samba-tool remotely.

But how should I specify the DN to use for simple bind? 

I tried many syntaxes:
  cn=Administrator at domain
all with the Administrator password, but it always fail with:
Failed to bind - LDAP error 49 LDAP_INVALID_CREDENTIALS -  <Simple Bind Failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE> <>
Failed to connect to 'ldap://fbsd35.cs.ait.ac.th/' with backend 'ldap': (null)

Can I use the command ldapsearch (from openLdap distribution) to access
the LDAP directory maintained by Samba?

If yes, what is the syntax in term of binding?

Thakns in advance,
