you have to set the password for "ldap admin dn" first.
try 'smbpasswd -w <password>'
the password is then stored in the secrets.tdb file. this is necessary to
make samba able to connect as a user with write permissions to the LDAP
server. otherwise, as your current situation shows, it is not possible to
change any information in the LDAP tree.
