That's not the problem, because they are sync'd on both servers
using slurpd. How does samba handle the validity of a machine
password? If i can solve this, then i can have a BDC...

I'm thinking maybe put add a MACHINE.SID file to both servers,
with the same SID. Maybe that can solve my problem.

I'll keep you informed.
