I use openldap 2.0.27 with phpLDAPadmin and sometimes gq.
By itself openldap has only command-line tools for manipulating the
directory data. I've been pretty happy with phpldapadmin although it has
it's quirks. It does appear to support Samba domains, users, groups and
machines but I haven't used them.
Some days it's just not worth chewing through the restraints...
