the LDAP passdb backend has pretty much fallen out of favor and only 
very few are still using this kind of setup. Therefor I highly recommend 
looking into joining the fileservers to AD, possibly Samba 4 AD with 
password replication to an LDAP server.

As for configuration, that is typically stored in a registy config 
backend, cf "REGISTRY-BASED CONFIGURATION" in man smb.conf.
