    That might be the case -- but they seemed to have been there
before.  What seems to be the case is that he replaced his old
Samba NT4-DC with Samba AD.  The windows DC's seemed to join to
the Samba AD "ok", but "clients" (win or lin, or whatever) are
complaining about not being able to find any login servers.

    *AT least*, that's how I read it.  Sounds like the
WinDC's might have served as login servers under the Samba-NT4-DC,
but that's no longer working w/the new Samba AD.

    I don't think he's replacing any Samba machines w/Win machines
from what I read, but then I could be totally misreading it --
I have before! ;-)

    Not sure that's what he did...but maybe he'll clarify?...
