Hi List!!!

Please spend my some light on my problem!

I'm using samba 3.0.13 in a large environement because we had problems
with the normal tdb-passwd backend we reinstalled our environement with
samba and we are using now the ldap backend. For our administrative
tasks we are using the smbldap-tools from idealx. We are not very happy
with this solution because we have some effects we do not like and we do
not know why they happen:

* Some machines produces a smabaSID which already exist for another
machine when the try to join the domain. How are the sambaSIDs determined?

* Users suddenly couldn't log on to the domain and I do not know why.
Usually a password reset solves the problem: For your reference here I
have a such an account which could not log in:
