Hi All,

I haven't been able to track down any info on this so would be
appreciative of any input. Links to any info on this would also be

Samba 3.2.5, Debian 5.0

Question 1;
Is there any way of setting up a "backup" windows domain controller in
the samba config? so if they main dc is not available, it automatically
queries the backup?

Question 2;
What is the best way to back up the UID/GID map? and can it be easily
imported back to a new install if the server fails for any reason.
