If you turn on "domain logons = yes" and set the "os level = xx" up high
enough you can cause every NT domain controller to shut down it's "net
logon service" - very mean thing to do man! Not very nice! No!

NT can be Soooooo bad!

No, they didn't have to reboot did they? Oh, no. But, isn't that normal
for NT? Sure it is! (;-)) Good reason to move to Samba I suspect. Maybe?

No co-incidence! Plain fact. Microsoft devotees call that "Stable",
"Production Quality", "Reliable", "Well backed", "Commercial".

I am not normally opinionated, but today was not a good day!
I had to take it out somewhere and then you came along. Aren't you sorry?
