In MS-LSAD LsarSetSecret it states that:

The server MUST also maintain "time stamp" values for current and old values of the secret object.
The following table lists the rules by which the time stamps are computed.
                          Value         Effect on old time                 Effect on new time
  Old secret value        NULL          Old value of "new secret time"     Not applicable
  Old secret value        Non-NULL      Current server time                Not applicable
  New secret value        NULL          Not applicable                     Current server time
  New secret value        Non-NULL      Not applicable                     Current server time

However, tests against Window 2008 show that setting the old value (but
not the new) removes the new value, and sets the time to 'current server

Please update the docs,
