Should have read this first:

Problem is I did it the wrong way on a few production systems.
Odds are this is the second time I did it wrong.

Running Debian Lenny using smbldap.
It mostly works.
Existing members of the domain are working OK.
The first thing that got my attention is was not able to join a new xp
workstation to the domain.

Also noticed that the server is not a member of the domain.

tdbdump secrets.tdb
does not show any entry for the server

Looked at one of the old servers secrets.tdb
and it did not have and entry for that server either.

Any suggestions on the best way to fix this?
