Thanks alot for sharing your experience! I will try such a configuration.

I would also like to thank Neal who pointed me to CTDB which really seems
to be the right solution to this problem. However, as there is no support
for CTDB in any production ready version of Samba I will not try that now.
In our case stability is even more important than avaiablity.
