We use "security=ads" and also "idmap config DOMAIN : backend = ad".  When my server has a netbios name and also one or more netbios aliases, do I need to "net ads join" all of the possible names, or only the primary netbios name?

Secondly, if I remove/add a netbios name, does anything need to be purged between the name change: "net cache flush" or removing any .TDB files?
