But "BDC" implies that we have a read only SAM/smbpasswd.  Which I assume
will be closely tied to the domain mode security code.  Follow where I'm

And I still think DMB should not be in this list.  Frankly, I prefer the
"domain master" and "domain logons" combinations.  I still don't see what
advantage this has.  From what I understand, it is not required for you to
be able to implement the "auth order" parameter.  Or am I mistaken.
