Actually, your two suggestions were what I'd already tried (except for
removing everything in the ldap database in 1 - how do you do that?). I
guess my language was a little confusing. I even changed the smb.conf.

Here's the output you requested:

# extended LDIF
#
# LDAPv3
# base <> with scope sub
# filter: (objectclass=*)
# requesting:
#

# search result
search: 2
result: 32 No such object

# numResponses: 1
