Major Problems change Domains in 2.0.0-prealpha on Solaris 2.5.1

Everthing has be going great until this afternoon.

I've been running samba on a small SPARC called 'radon' for about a week
with great success with a domain called SYS-TEST.

This afternoon I installed the same cvs version on our main samba server
called 'fozz' and named the domain SYS-LABS.

The NT Wks get a welcome message to SYS-LABS when they are switched to
SYS-LABS, but log.smb reports

>[1998/09/15 18:03:28, 0] smbd/reply.c:reply_sesssetup_and_X(657)
>  NT Password did not match ! Defaulting to Lanman

Now nobody can logon to any machine, presumably because of the above error

I created the machine accounts with

		smbpasswd -m -a NTLAB2PC01 NTLAB2PC01 etc etc

smbclient '\\fozz\homes' -U sm works fine.

smbclient -L fozz shows that fozz is the Workgroup Master

Worst of all I can't move any machines back to SYS-TEST, I get the same error
message as above

Win 95 clients can connect to \\fozz\homes successfully

Any ideas? I hope I've made a silly mistake!
