I like doing what I can as non-root, so here's my final version:

$ kinit administrator at AD.NETDIRECT.CA
Password for administrator at AD.NETDIRECT.CA
Warning: Your password will expire in 35 days on Thu Jan  2 23:50:26 2014
$ sed -e 's/${DOMAINDN}/dc=AD,dc=NETDIRECT,dc=CA/g'  \
       -e 's/${NETBIOSNAME}/NETDIRECT/g'              \
       -e 's/${NISDOMAIN}/NETDIRECT/g'                \
       /usr/share/samba/setup/ypServ30.ldif | ldbmodify -H 
ldap://ad1.ad.netdirect.ca --option="dsdb:schema update allowed=true" -k 
yes -i

Bang-on, thanks!
