Quest of SUSE 10 with Server2k8 AD authentication

I am trying to revive AD user authentication from a 2008 server {PDC} for 2 Suse VMs and after a couple of days (and a lot of learning :^) ) are still running into problems on sambaclient 3 (Version 3.0.24-2.23-1296-SUSE-CODE10). Could you please help me find the problem in the config / set up. Due to policy (not AD but the official kind) I cannot / may not readily change or upgrade software and thus need to get this going again. Before I started on this some PDC had changed roles and where removed.

wbinfo -u and -i and -n and -g and kinit and klist seem to work ok

But on machine 1:
smbclient -L {PDC} -U {someAdminUser}
{UnSuccessfully reports after SYSVOL}
Error connecting to {PDC SERVER IP} (Connection refused)
Connection to {PDC} failed
NetBIOS over TCP disabled -- no workgroup available

But in /etc/samba/smb.conf (also for machine 2)
disable netbios = no

wbinfo --get-auth-user

{someAdminUser} was also added as a local user on machine 1

where as on machine 2:
smbclient -L {PDC} -U {someAdminUser}
{Successfully reports all}
wbinfo --get-auth-user
No authorised user configured

AD users and groups are not updated locally nor authenticated on AD
i.e. cannot login.

Main problem seem to be wbinfo logon Errors on both.
NT code 0xc0000388 (0xc0000388)
