comment User in passdb, but getpwnam() fails!
something else: The admin account is in both LDAP and /etc/passwd. If I remove the files parameter from nsswitch.conf leaving only ldap (getent passwd dumps only ldap entries) I am able to still login with the admin account. The test account still fails to login; test is only in the LDAP database. It's as if Smbd is not using NSS consistently or more like a glibc issue. ld shows no missing library links. And I did restart LDAP server between checks to rule out caching.

how can that be though if I can SSH into the same host with an account that only exists in LDAP? I've done nothing to compile or configure openssl to bind to LDAP. Additionally, id test returns details for user test which is only in LDAP database.

I did all that. My original points out that pdbedit -Lv test works which is an indication that my smb.conf file knows how to query LDAP or send the query to nss_ldap. testparm returns no errors either. Although I'm using smbldap-tools, it's not an smbldap-tools issue. Neither the smbclient nor a Win7 host can login unless user is also in /etc/passwd. Ran some straces and found nothing out of the ordinary - no failures or DNS issues. Thanks for your input.

comment Hubs/switches taking out switches?
what is meant by "dumb hub apparently caused the 3700's to freak out?" What does freak out mean? What, specifically, is happening? All these other comments about broadcast storms and loops are erroneous in nature. The IEEE Spanning Tree protocol has protections against such things. It might help if you dumped a copy of your "show run" for the switch.

"and more efficiently than Courier or Cyrus" I don't suppose you have data to back that claim up do you? If you do, I'd like to see it.

comment How do I setup apache to have two domains pointing to the same web app
not sure why I was down voted 3x when my answer (A) closely matches the accepted answer and (B) the original post was not very clear and my response gives the intended result as the accepted one. In other words, the original post makes no mention of keeping some content separate. So whom ever down voted this, please be careful in the future!

comment HP DAT72x6 autoloader
not possible. The unit is totally unresponsive after it has powered up and has gone through one of the two scenarios I mentioned. In fact, hitting the any of the front panel buttons yields no response what so ever. I've even tried power it up with no SCSI cables, just a terminator (tried both ports) and I get same behavior. The fact that the unit powers up tells me that the electronics may be OK and that it may be an alignment issue. I suppose also it could be a failing power supply too. Just no details about what the light really is on for.
