I have a similar backend, with Samba 3.x DC's. When you change your
Windows password, samba will also change your unix password. Linux
users can use the "smbpasswd" command to change their unix+samba
passwords in one step. So, in effect, there is a "single"
I use oracle (sun) directory server which supports multi-master
replication. this allows me to have multiple domain controllers,
since each DC has a writable backend.
