I tested my failover yesterday and a strange problem came up.
While my dc01 was down I could not login on dc02 with any of my local 
After dc01 was online again, login was OK.

My nsswitch.conf is a "regular" file:

passwd:         compat winbind
group:          compat winbind
shadow:         compat

As I read about nsswitch, with this config it should try to authenticate 
the user from the local files, passwd, group etc and after the search 
isn't succes goes to search in winbind.
Looks like cant find the users in the local files and try to search in 
winbind but that neither have local accounts information.

Shall I change compat to files? Since I dont use +- for NIS database in 
passwd and group files.

Kind regards:
