Issue

Samba cannot switch backend from 1st ldap server to 2nd one if 1st server has no response.

1) Configure backend of samba as follows:

/etc/samba/smb.conf
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
passdb backend = ldapsam:"ldap://<1st ldap server> ldap://<2nd ldap server>"
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2) Start 1st ldap server.

3) Start 2nd ldap server.

4) Send SIGSTOP signal to 1st ldap server.

 # kill -SIGSTOP <pid>

5) Start smbd.
