i'm not quite familiar with your scenario (never tried it out myself),
so someone with more years of Samba wrestling might step in :]
That being said, what i'd do:
- as you said, getent returns ID as stated in your LDAP backend - good,
but what about Samba stats, because 'getent passwd' will query the posix
part of LDAP user entry (and ofc the /etc/passwd file - depending on
what is stated on /etc/nsswitch.conf and in what order)
- what about pdbedit? try:
'pdbedit -Lv | grep -A15 username' on both servers to query User Samba
infromation from LDAP
- what the 'ldapsearch says on both servers? i'd try to use ldapsearch
to see both - posix and samba information from LDAP from both servers
- also you said in samba logs you see complaints about grp SID .. what
is your unix <-> windows grp mapping on both servers? 'net groupmap
list' returns on both servers?
- as i said - in this scenario i'm not sure about things - but question
for someone else - shouldn't the Samba local SID be same on both servers
- how about turning the first server to PDC and second to BDC? even if
you do, it doesn't mean that you'll have to add windows clients to
domain, they can happily sit in a workgroup untached but your
authentication process would get more clear ..
happy hunting :]
