my problem is that I can´t add a nt WS to a samba domain.
I have a linux ( 2.0.36 ) server with samba 2.0.3 and
20 Win95 ( not b ) clients. The clients connect to the
samba controlled nt domain without any problems ( PW change
with sync works ! ). encryption is OFF.
Users can login and use their homedir without problems.

Now I want to add a NT WS ( nttest ) to this domain.
I use NT 4.0 with SP 2 so it is safe to use encryption = no.
I have added an account for nttest ( shadow pw ):
and used mksmbpasswd -a -m nttest:


But nttest is always refused.
"Connection is refused by domain controller. Contact sysadmin...."
( message is translated by me. Its the german NT WS version )

log.smb witch I don´t understand:
[1999/03/03 13:28:23, 2] smbd/reply.c:reply_special(95)
  netbios connect: name1=SERVER           name2=NTTEST
[1999/03/03 13:28:48, 2] smbd/server.c:main(702)
  Changed root to /

My smb.conf:
   workgroup = enterprise
   server string = Master Server  [ Samba %h %v ]
   log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m 
   security = user
   password level = 8
   unix password sync = Yes
   socket options = TCP_NODELAY
   local master = yes
   os level = 64
   domain master = yes
   preferred master = yes
   domain logons = yes
   logon script = startup.bat
   name resolve order = wins lmhosts bcast
   wins support = yes
   dns proxy = yes

I only have a MACHINE.SID in .../private/

Can you help me?
I read the NT DOM FAQ but did it step by step and the subnetmask is ok,
