[Samba] Problem with 02 domains on a single PDC

If I understand things, you have one server that you want to serve as a 
domain controller for two different domains. Each domain is a separate 
ldap dc within facomp.edu and each has either its own NIC or at least a 
different IP address on the same NIC.

You are running two different copies of Samba at the same time, pointing 
to a different smb.conf when you start each one. You may want to look at 
http://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Multiple_Server_Instances for an example 
of how to accomplish this.

I haven't tried this myself, but I notice that the wiki assigns 
different pid and lock directories for each instance. Your configuration 
doesn't do this. There are also some differences on how it specifies the 
interfaces that may or may not be important. Give the wiki a try and 
good luck.
