Yeah, because I've been too distracted on other things, and the kludged-up reading of the contextCSN and pretending it sort of looked like a USN was enough to pass my tests (meaning the tests are not very good). The requirement is actually quite simple: the USN attributes must match exactly what Microsoft does in AD, including being published in the rootDSE (so i can fetch them and publish them in ours). I'm sorry I rather dropped the ball on this one. Andrew Bartlett -- Andrew Bartlett http://samba.org/~abartlet/ Authentication Developer, Samba Team http://samba.org Samba Developer, Red Hat Inc.
