I was just trying to convey that I have multiple DCs running. But as they are not in a cluster like a SQL cluster, it was a poor choice of words.

I had previously been accessing the DCs directly, without "ldap://" (i.e. samba-tool ldapcmp dc1 dc2). I do not know if that was incorrect and I just got lucky or if there was a change that now requires ldap:// -- in any case, it appears to be working now.
