[Samba] Taking down domain controller and I don't want to upset winbind




Hi,

I use ads and have a windows domain with several domain controllers
(dc1, dc2, dc3, etc).  Winbind seems to "be connected" to one of these
domain controllers:

wbinfo -P
checking the NETLOGON for domain[MYDOMAIN] dc connection to
"dc1.mydomain.local" succeeded

Presumably winbind learned that "dc1" was a domain controller by
performing a DNS lookup of type SRV on
_ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.mydomain.local

I will be permanently turning off dc1.  There are plenty of other
domains to choose from (all listed at DNS/SRV).  When dc1 is
unavailable, will winbind continue to attempt connections to dc1 (and
fail) or will it try "the next domain controller" in the DNS/SRV list
(and succeed)?

Thank you,

Chris
