Sorry about when i ask too.
But i think this on Topic on this List.

The Question is:
What happens in Samba when the Master LDAP Server ist down and a Change- 
Request for the Workstation-Machine-Account-Passwort comes?

- Is it possible that a User can't Logon on this Workstation?
- Or falls the Workstation out of the Domain? 
(Nevermore a Member of the Domain)?
- When nothing happens, why is there a Mechanism for changes of Machine
  Passworts (Security, or what else)?
- When i right understand, then is in this Szenario no Changes of
  Passwort's, LastLogonTime usw. possible, right?

Thank You
