Thanks Gaiseric

Making progress but still messed up :-(

Turned up error messages in samba and getting some error message such as:
_samr_SetUserInfo2: root does possess sufficient rights

Odd as the I'm not using root.
My administrator account is administrator not root.

Set up over 4 years ago and the populate script created account like this:
dn: uid=administrator,ou=People,dc=advocap,dc=org

I have read some comments from people saying to have the administrator account
to be named root. Has smldap-tools or samba been changed to require the
administrator to have uid of root?
