Description Bastien Nocera 2005-11-22 04:39:02 EST

This is the same problem as upstream bug:

Samba and winbind will not failover properly when a primary active directory
server fails. Authentication works well until the primary AD servers network
cable is pulled.  The secondary is still available but it is unable to
authenticate to it without rebooting.
