I managed to solve the problem by restarting the samba server and
rebooting the w2k-ws a couple of times. I also stripped our former
smbpasswd as the log complained about it being corrupt.

The machine successfully joined the domain, but regular (smbpasswd)
users are not able to log on to the machine. While logging in, users
immediately receives the message:

"The system cannot log you on to this domain because the system's
computer account in its primary domain is missing or the password on
that account is incorrect."

But the w2k-ws has just made its entry in smbpasswd while joining the

In the Event Log of the w2k-ws there is an error stating:

"Failed to authenticate with \\MONA, a Windows NT or Windows 2000 domain
controller for domain MATH-MONA"

where MONA is indeed our samba server.

And, I guess because of the error in the Event Log, samba does not log
anything when a user tries to log on.
