- samba compiled with cluster support?
- samba's config with "clustering = yes"
- ctdbd socket in samba matching ctdbd's socket?

if that all is confirmed, it _should_ work.

- ctdb status prints a lot of useful information
- (onnode all) ctdb getdbmap shows the db's attached on the
  current/all nodes.
- ctdb cattdb registry.tdb cats the local copy of registry tdb on
  a node

let's see what you have this far.

Cheers - Michael
