Update

I changed my machine suffix like this: ldap machine suffix = ou=Computer but I still have a problem.

I am on Ubuntu platform on one system I had configure samba+ldap and now I can access the samba share through the Microsoft side but I still get this error:

[2011/04/07 17:15:21, 1] lib/smbldap.c:another_ldap_try(1175) Connection to LDAP server failed for the 6 try! [2011/04/07 17:15:22, 1] lib/smbldap.c:another_ldap_try(1175) Connection to LDAP server failed for the 7 try!
[2011/04/07 17:15:23, 1] lib/smbldap.c:another_ldap_try(1175) Connection to LDAP server failed for the 8 try!

First thing will be that you have a line in your smb.conf that looks like this:

ldap machine suffix ou=machines 

or something similar. It must look like this, with an additional = character:

ldap machine suffix = ou=machines 

Then it appears that your LDAP server is either not running or not configured correctly, which is the main problem. Did you start it? And on what platform are you, with which samba version, what type of LDAP server etc.?
