If I remember right you are using Samba as the PDC. On the system that
is the Samba PDC do you have the following line in the smb.conf file:
    password server = *

If you do, you ran into the same problem I did in setting up the PDC.
The documentation led me to believe that you can put this line in all
smb.conf files. If you do the system that is the PDC will not find its
self for logon authentication. Remove the line from smb.conf file on the
PDC system.
