Hi, my preliminary checklist:

- make sure XP has the samba4 server setup as dns server
- check dns for the varius _ldap._tcp entries from XP
- start samba with smbd -i -d3 or higher and check the debug messages
- for w2k I had to add arcfour-hmac-md5 enctype to
$PREFIX/private/secrets.keytab, to change this edit your krb5.conf and
reprovision or put "credentials_update_all_keytabs();" in a file and run
it with smbscript (thanks to abartlet for this), you can check the
content of the keytab with "ktutil -k private/secrets.keytab list".
- vista wants aes256-cts-hmac-sha1-96 but still doesn't work ;(
- post debug output to #samba-technical or here, so ppl could make more
educated guesses than this one.

hope this helps

BTW: Is there documentation for the various ejs funcions for samba?
