Hi Andrew.

The ldapsearch you gave me returned the following output:
chester@reploid:~$ ldapsearch -h ldap.server -x -LLL -b '' -s base
'(objectclass=*)' namingcontexts
namingContexts: dc=dominio,dc=com,dc=br

I think It's ok, cause that's precisely the root of my ldap tree.

Just another info: when I was on the root shell and tried to change to
another user, i did changed, but i gave some errors:

fileserver:~# su - lscarneiro
I have no name!@fileserver:~$ whoami
whoami: cannot find name for user ID 1130

but than i read this link that dan gave me:
and installed the libnss-ldapd and libpam-ldapd packages as
recommended.  but now i can't even 'su' to my username:

fileserver:~# su - lscarneiro
Unknown id: lscarneiro

It's seems that the unix and samba database have lost their sync. I'll
try to execute the backup/restore in a new db dir as you said and post
the results here. This backup need to be from a point before the
upgrade or a can simple get a dump of the actual database?

Sorry for my poor english.
