Don't reuse subjects that doesn't have anything about what are you 
asking for.

Putting back "Re: [Samba] Unable to change password in windows - 
SAMBA_LDAP_PDC" in turn of "Re: [Samba] Re: samba Digest, Vol 59, Issue 
28", a lot of people don't read digests and so will ignore your message 
(if not all).

I can't even say that the previous and this error messages has anything 
to do with your problem (but as the previous message doesn't repeated, 
the server now is finding whatever it is looking for), or if that its a 
name resolution problem. Use a log level bigger than 0 to the server 
spit something useful, use something like 3.

But yes, its not normal to the server don't find objects in LDAP as its 
not normal start to give "permission denied" errors trying to reopen log 
files. What are the permissions of your log directory?
