Simply mark ":Port" as being optional and mention default is 389.
port is _not_ optional in this special replication case- and _must_ be set
to another port than the default ldap port 389 (see above: <>),
as the default ldap port is occupied by sambas ldap interface when smbd is started.

Hmm, there could be a (rare) use-case where smbd and OpenLDAP are running on the same physical machine but on different interfaces with different IP addresses and both on port 389. This is a real corner-case though.
this could - and will- easily lead to communication problems.
so the normal setup will be: smbd and slapd (on the same host) communicating internal over ldapi://, replication traffic between the several slapds on the dcs only via ldap://<host>:<port> (port<>389),
samba-clients communicating to smbd-ldap-interface (389)

Ciao, Michael.
