hi everyone

an attempt to set up a cluster, I'm reading around and see 
some howto writers would say to put "private dir on the FS 
cluster" - one question I have: is this correct? necessary?

I have partial success, I get:

$ ctdb status
Number of nodes:2
pnn:0        OK
pnn:1        UNHEALTHY (THIS NODE)
hash:0 lmaster:0
hash:1 lmaster:1
Recovery mode:NORMAL (0)
Recovery master:0

I use:
   passdb backend = ldapsam:"ldapi:///var/run/ldapi"
   idmap backend = ldap:"ldapi:///var/run/ldapi"

and on that one "unhealthy" node I see:

50.samba: ERROR: smb.conf cache create failed

would you care to make some sense out of it for me please?
