I put a "private dir" statement in the global section but testparm gave
me a 'unknown parameter encountered'. :-(
Anyway I wish to use alternatively 2 smb.conf definitions file in the
same machine using security=domain. I can't and I suspect a problem with
secrets.tdb stored host password are buzzing when I use the other
smb.conf configuration file.

I guess I should have looked in the code :-)
