3.0: Initialization LDAP Database

There are many ways to initialize the LDAP database backend for samba and many scripts to help you out; however these loose our initial control of the database and can lead to issues such as database management.

Once your server is up and running with users on it, the database can not really be manipulated without knowing the full workings of LDAP, so for many of us we are stuck with what we created.

The future of Samba is changing to Active Directory; we keep this in mind when creating the database so it can be an easier upgrade path migrating to Samba4; eventually Samba4 will be able to support OpenLDAP as a modular backend.
