I have had a samba PDC up and running for about a month now with no
issues, this weekend I added a BDC and it seems that all my clients are
now logging into the BDC automatically instead of the PDC. I had to
mount the homes from the PDC to the BDC so that users can have access to
their home directories and set the path to the profiles directory on the
BDC to that of the PDC. I also had to copy all my login scripts from the
PDC to the BDC so that they will run when users login. Everything seems
to be working okay now that everything is pointing to the correct
directories, but it seems like things a backward from what they should
be. If I login to the domain, my home directory (mapped to drive U: in
windows XP), now shows up as the Backup Domain Controller, instead of
the PDC. Should the BDC only be used as a failsafe, when the PDC isn't
available? I have included my conf files for both PDC and BDC.

Samba version 3.0.23d-30 with LDAP backend.
