Last update on May 26 16:20 GMT-5.0. However, the event
was record on May 21 and another machine also recorded the
same event ( except for that machine ) on May 25. The
version of smbd Samba running at that time would have been
compiled on May 20.

The log files are set to log.%m and I didnt see any
The fact that two smbd processes running as root are
connected to the NT box wouldn't be unusual would it?
I have noticed this behaviour before but didn't
worry about it. I'm guessing on of them is for the
domain connection. Could they both be trying to
change the password?

I am noticing a lot of core dumps going on an
INVALID PIPE HANDLE error. However, the core dump
size was limited to 0 bytes ( not to save the file )
so I don't have the core files to debug. I will go
back and change this. See what I can do to track
things down. Unless this is a familar problem which
you have already solved.
Thanks again for the help,
