 How To Kill a Windows Network

"Wednesday afternoon I experimented for the first time with binding Panther Server to our Windows Active Directory. In the XServe's Directory Access app, I selected Active Directory, entered the domain and forest, computer ID, and it all just worked - I could see all of the users and groups on the domain from the Mac's Workgroup Manager. I was so impressed. Decided to wait for the next day to do more integration testing. Thursday morning I got an urgent call from the sysadmin that many of the Windows machines on our network were unable to log on because DC "mulder" was not responding, and that according to the System Events logs, the AD services seemed to have crashed exactly when I bound the Mac server to the domain."
