My knowledge begins to run out here, but I can tell you how I solved
similar problem here. I am only running 2.0.7 but I do have NtWS clients.
I noticed that sometimes when I switch Domain names (while testing) or leave
and rejoin the domain, SAMBA would respond with a domain not found or
password invalid. What I have gotten in the habit of doing is going to
SAMBA and resetting the machine password for the machine I'm working on.
This seemed to solve the problem and I could rejoin the domain.
I know this really has nothing to do with the version you're working on but
you never can tell. It may be worth a try if you haven't already done it.
I think the SAMBA gurus need to respond here.... :) that way us newbies can
continue to learn and seek the higher level of knowledge.... :))
