This relies on your old openldap server also being a samba server, if 
not, then you could probably dump your openldap users and use this to 
add users to AD.

Note: don't use 4.1.15, use 4.1.16 (this was a security release)

Well, yes and no, yes if you just want to use samba4 like you are using 
Samba3, no if you want an AD DC.
