We are using FreeBSD with Samba+OpenLDAP, each user effectively needs
mapping to a local user so what we've used to give us the ability to type :
and get their home dir, as well as type :
to get their username/groups... is to install nss_ldap, pam_ldap, edit
the files in /etc/pam.d/, there is a lot of good information on this,
have a look at the Samba docs as well as the documentation for
pam_ldap and nss_ldap.
