How did you provision ? If you provisioned interactively, you usually 
get asked for a password for the Administrator, this is the password you 
need and 'Administrator' is the user.

I wouldn't use ldapadmin (I take it you mean phpldapadmin), last time I 
tried it, it didn't work very well, you could try LAM (ldap account 
manager) or apache directory studio. There is also Samba's own program 
'samba-tool' and if you can also use the ldb-tools or ldaptools.

Finally, if all else fails, there is ADUC on a windows machine.
