Hello Volker,

thanks for your quick response. I tried using only one backend (without
smbpasswd) and it seems to work. At least i get a user authenticated.
But if i shutdown the first ldap server the backend does not use one of
the other two.
I will generate a level 10 log tomorrow. We have a quite uncommon setup
here, where we use the backend only for authentication (Universal
password feature of NDS), there is only read-only access to the
eDirectory servers.

BTW i´m using samba 3.0.20b(-3.4) (SuSE SLES 9 x64 SP3) 

Best regards,
Andreas Octav
