Dazu meine Meinung:

Hi Dave,

in our case the problem was caused by samba trying different forms
of the password (like "password", "PASSWORD", "Password", etc.)
Since the first attempts failed and our NT PDC is configured to lock
any account after three logon failures, accounts were locked

Our solution was to adjust the "password level" parameter in smb.conf
Since I'm not working there anymore I can't tell You the exact setting
anymore - sorry. Perhaps this helps nevertheless.
