ok i have looked over everything and the only thing i can see at this
moment is this ...

in your smbldap_bind.conf file you arn't using a bind dn of
cn=admin,dc=family,dc=rahim-dale,dc=org for authentication against the
ldap server but the line in the config i gave you before was rootdn
"cn=admin,dc=rahim-dale,dc=org" ... when you first setup ldap no accounts
exist in the ldap database the rootdn account is like a virtual account
that will always have full access and because of this (and i'm guessing
your ldap tree is blank) you will only be able to use the rootdn to bind
at this time.

there are a few lines you can try to attempt to bind to the ldap server ...

ldapsearch -D cn=admin,dc=family,dc=rahim-dale,dc=org -h 127.0.0.1 -x -W ""
ldapsearch -D cn=admin,dc=rahim-dale,dc=org -h 127.0.0.1 -x -W ""

the first the the bind dn in your smbldap_bind.conf and the second is
using the rootdn from the other email.

as your ldap tree is blank you wont get much output but one should fail
with a bind error and the other should say something like no such object.

HTH, let me know if they work will see if i can see anything else that may
be wrong.

Matt.
