The NT-Workststions are the Clients, the authentication info is 
central on the samba server. Rigth?

In this case "password server" is missing. This is the NT or Samba 
server that owns the authenticaion info.

If the samba with this smb.conf has the central authentication info 
you must use "security = user"

>    encrypt passwords = yes
