OGGETTO: [Samba] Samba, master, slave LDAP

I have set up PDC and BDC using samba 3.0.11 and also
master, slave LDAP (using openldap 2.2.23) on 4
separated machine. I would like to know how to config
PDC/BDC samba so that when the master LDAP is down,
the PDC/BDC will check the slave LDAP automatically. 
In the smb.conf of  the PDC/BDC you can specify

passdb backend = ldapsam: "ldap:// ldap://"

In this example only 1 slave is configured but i may extend to
include all your slave ldaps.

Also, do I need to config smbldap_conf.pm file for the
$masterLDAP / $slaveLDAP value? Actually, what the use
of smbldap_conf.pm file? 

The smbldap tools are needed for manage your accounts, not for
automatic load balance or fail-over during
logon or sharing access.
In the smbldap_conf.pm of your generic  PDC/BDC you can specify your
Master LDAP and only a slave LDAP (I think..), choose a slave ldap
nearing to the DC that you configure...
