I didn't try that. but if it happens again I shall. I knew the LDAP
servers were working, but that the Samba server (via nss) wasn't talking
What I ended up doing, was turned off nss' use of TLS. That fixed it.
In RHEL, the command is authconfig.
Why it suddenly stopped talking to each other, I still don't know.
Obviously I need to come in during non-office hours and config and test
and retest to get TLS working at both ends again.
