Hi all,
I am newbie on this and I couldn't figure out what I have configured wrong.
I have setup three Linux Debian Sarge servers with openldap2 + samba3.  
PDC and master ldap on one machine and BDC slave ldap on the other two.  
I followed instructions on
http://us1.samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-Guide/happy.html to set them up.  
I am using utilities smbldap-passwd.pl from idealx for password changing.
User could change password on PDC and it will populate to DBC, but when the
user change password on BDC, it will not populate to PDC.
All machines are on the same subnet and all services are running.
Can any expert please help?
Following are some configuration files:
