glad its working, hehe er.
ldap_connect_system: Failed to retrieve password from secrets.tdb

from the http://samba.idealx.org/smbldap-tools.en.html doc ...

don't forget to also set the samba account password in secrets.tdb file :

smbpasswd -w samba

.... from man smbpasswd ...

-w password
This parameter is only available if Samba has been compiled
with
LDAP support. The -w switch is used to specify the password
to
be used with theldap admin dn. Note that the password is
stored
in the secrets.tdb and is keyed off of the admin's DN.
This
means that if the value of ldap admin dn ever changes, the
pass-
word will need to be manually updated as well.

HTH

Matt.
