Hi all,

I have just started our first attempts to upgrade our samba3/ldap domain 
to samba4. I can see my users, I can see my grouops, kinit works etc. 
Good start.

But now SUCH a basic question:

I would like to browse my new samba4 ldap directory, and I am completely 
in the dark in what share to provide my credentials. Anonymous access 
works, but I cannot see much. (google tells me this is normal for active 

I have an administrator user, I can change it's password using 
'samba-tool user setpassword administrator' etc, smbclient works, but in 
what form should I use the account to talk ldap over 389?
