i experienced something very strange (for me):

i stopped all samba instances on my linux box including ldap-server, 
because authentication is only done by it

but i was still able to login to the domain from a windows xp workstation
authentication succeeded (with the right user/password information)
i tested it 10 times for different users and even if i switch off the 
linux box !!!

if i typed wrong user/pass information, i was not able to login.
of course, all profiles and so on could not be found if i loged in, but 
the user was authenticated right

who could explain it to me plz?
