    Hi D,

    If your LDAP backend is setup properly, then no you do not also need to add the user via smbpasswd.  Have you tried connecting as a user that does not have an smbpasswd entry?

    How is your DNS/DHCP setup working out?

    Hi sir, thanks for the reply, dns is working perfectly. dns is configured on ubuntu box.
    After configuring the ldap server and configuring it as primary source of authentication.
    Then configured samba pdc using YAST and Samba server, and also enabled " Manage samba group parameters"
    finally did the unix to windows group mappings by executing net groupmap add , for ntadmins and domain admins
