samba auth problem

I have set up a SAMBA server with SAMBA_2_2 (CVS version)
in a large network with several Windows NT 4.0 PDCs.
The machine has joined the right domain successfully, but when 
trying to access the it from a Windows client, I am prompted for a
password and cannot access any share.

In log.smbd I get the following messages:

[2001/09/24 17:19:30, 0] rpc_client/cli_netlogon.c:cli_net_auth2(160)
  cli_net_auth2: Error NT_STATUS_NO_TRUST_SAM_ACCOUNT

  cli_nt_setup_creds: auth2 challenge failed

  connect_to_domain_password_server: unable to setup the PDC credentials to machine <HOST_NAME_OF_PASSWORD_SERVER>. Error was : NT_STATUS_NO_TRUST_SAM_ACCOUNT.
[2001/09/24 17:19:30, 0] smbd/password.c:domain_client_validate(1591)
  domain_client_validate: Domain password server not available.

Does anybody know why I get NT_STATUS_NO_TRUST_SAM_ACCOUNT?

I haven't found any hint on the net so far.
Any ideas on this highly appreciated.
