I haven't implemented this myself but I would assume you need to have the "private" directory either on a cluster shared disk or manually syncronised on each cluster node. And also hard code the netbios name and ip address that samba uses on all cluster nodes like,


	netbios name = mysambaserver
	interfaces =		#virtual ip address

	thanks Andy.

My guess you have to upgrade to Samba 3 ?

I don't think you need, if you don't want to, use the LDAP backend for

I have developed the Sun support agent for Samba on Sun Cluster (The
agent should work the same way). 
There is no problem with Samba 3 as ADS member when the you have failover
or a manully switch.
