Are you saying you changed the registry directly, or using the
policy editor?

This, we assume, is what you've set up in smb.conf as your netlogon

Maybe, maybe not.  As I posted a bit earlier, I've seen an XP system
"go bad" and require the RequireSignOrSeal registry setting be modified
in order for it to continue to find the PDC.

Interesting that you are using profiles, because that was what I
was playing with lately, during the time when the XP system went
funny.  I don't see how that would have anything to do with it, though.
