Great, thanks Franz

I have found
How to update to Samba 3.4 on SLES10 SP3 and SP4

I am backing up before I try it... for incase I mess it up.

Also from
> wbinfo --set-auth-user=Administrator%password ????
NEVER do this.   ...  {Now I have cleared this!!!}

We also have in  /etc/nsswitch.conf  :
passwd: compat winbind
group: compat
hosts: files dns
 - which I don't understand yet... compat?

Hi Danie,
do not spend any time in Samba 3.0.x, it will not work in cause of the sealed connections between the Samba-Server and the AD.
Upgrade to something newer. 
there is a special repo for sles 10 sp1 with samba 3.4.3 called SLES10-GPLv3-Extras.

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.
