I have a server "student" that is a meber server of a win2000 domain.
it has on smb.conf "security = server"
and as password server the win2000 PDC
Every user has also an independent local user on linux server used for
other purposes.
Some days ago i deleted all users taht did not make use of any service in
the last 9 months, both from the domain and from the linux server.
After one days, at random time, some times even two times a day, other not
even one, i got about 300k of log with the following lines
(repaeted for each one of the hundreds of deleted users)
Of coruise user 01829659 does not exixt in unix database, but is not even
