  If I remember correctly, you need to specify the domain or machine SID
in the smb.conf file. I had identical problems about two months or so
ago, but as I´ve been working on something else since then and haven´t
touched Samba for at least that long, I´m not *entirely* sure.

I definitely posted something like this at the time, so have a look in
the Samba mailing list archives.
