Windows XP logon problem - used WinXP_SignOrSeal.reg

Hi all,

I run Samba 2.2.2 on a FreeBSD system. It is set up as a PDC as
described in David Bannon's HOWTO.

My Windows XP workstation can join the domain (i.e. the computer can
join the domain), and an entry in smbpasswd is created. When I restart
the workstation and try to login, I always get a server not found or
computer not found in domain error. I already used the
WinXP_SignOrSeal.reg file that comes with the Samba source. This didn't
solve my problem.

I see this entry in the Windows XP System Event Log:

This computer could not authenticate with \\THUIS, a Windows domain
controller for domain PIWEBS, and therefore this computer might deny
logon requests. This inability to authenticate might be caused by
another computer on the same network using the same name or the password
for this computer account is not recognized. If this message appears
again, contact your system administrator.

Does anyone know how to solve this?
