I wouldn't mind being updated on this either, just having fscked up a
Samba 3.0.11 domain by (my own script ;) having Samba smbpasswd re-define
all machines in the domain.

The young fellow who had to stay until 20:00 hours updating the 75 odd
workstations on the evening it was necessary, was not grateful.

Needless to say, it will never happen again. However, an antidote would be
very welcome.
