You're probably right, but the fact that I'll have more than one samba 
server to be served by the same directory tree does not allow me to go 
into this direction. I HAVE to stick with a master/slave scheme. Unless 
you have a way to permit machine accounts to be created on a local 
directory tree while users are on a master directory tree and replicated 

I don't think I had any problem when I did my first testss. The ldap 
database whas, in fact, locally defined.
