Are you sure smbldap-useradd and smbldap-groupadd are in your $PATH?

This will show you what your $PATH is:
$ echo $PATH

Look through the list of directories and see if the location of
smbldap-useradd is there; I expect it not to be. The Fedora
smbldap-tools packages typically put the smbldap-* scripts in...less
than convenient places such as /opt/IDEALX/sbin/. I don't know why
anyone thinks this is a good idea.
