where is the documentation on this? I would think this would be a
common configuration with ldap, trying to consolidate to one ldap
directory. Anyone written any HowTo's?
since we are using smbldap-tools, I guess this means a re-write to make
those utilities work?

Thanks, We'll try that...

%L is what I meant...the netbios name of the server(meaning what server
the client wanted)
We use this to make one large quad xeon act like 4 different servers.

We tested putting a netbios alias into our pdc with ldap, and we can
type that alias as the domain we are logging into
on the main network, and use the variable in the smb.conf file for
various things....works great!
when we got our BDC up, we tried putting our main campus domain as the
workgroup name, then put in what we were using as
the remote domain in as an alias(just like on the main server), and even
a windows 98 machine couldn't find the domain....
does BDC break this?
