Thanks for the reply's.
Is there anyway to have Samba just read whatever is in the database for
the UID/GID map if the DC is not available? From my testing as soon as
the DC is unavailable for any reason the ability to login ceases.
Am I right in thining that by adding 2 x "kdc" selections to
/etc/krb5.cfg I'm setting the 2 DC's to be used for lookups?
