Hi all,

thanks for your replies! Is it correct to assume that "net ads
testjoin" will only ask for a password if the secrets.tdb is missing
or if it is corrupt. I understand that the secrets.tdb stores the
account password and thus if that file exists and can be read the
account password should be available to net and thus no need to ask
for a password?
