Hi Louis, if you are sure the problem exists and it wasn't just a 
one-off problem, then it should be easy to track down. I created a new 
domain with wheezy & samba from backports, but the samba version at that 
time was 4.1.9 and I have since upgraded to 4.1.11. I joined a second DC 
when I created the domain and everything worked ok then and is still 
working ok now.
