I have too samba pdc each controlling it's own domain. My old Redhat 7.2 
(samba 2.2.2) is working fine with logons fra win 2k machines. On the 
redhat 7.3 (tried samba 2.2.3a, 2.2.2, 2.2.5) it ads the machine accounts, 
are in /etc/password and /etc/samba/smbpassword with the $ where they 
should be. The problem is that I can not log in to the domain comtrolled by 
the 7.3 machine.
It gives the following error:

"The system cannot log you on to this domain because the system computer 
account in its primary domain is missing or the password on that account is 

I have reinstalled Samba 3 times, every time rejoined the clients and even 
tryed ones to remove the MSCHINE.SID fil. Nothing helps. I have tryed to 
manuelly create the machine accounts and tryed to do it "on the fly", but 
its the same everytime.

The global section of the conf fil are the same on both pdc's (included 
below) and everything else regarding Samba are set up the same. In the 
/var/log/samba/log.machinename nothing is add to the win2k machine 
accounts. Win9x machines can log in to both domains, and the win2k machines 
can log in to the domain controlled by the 6.2 pdc.

Anybody else who has encountered this problem? and know how to fix it..

         max log size = 50
         add user script = /usr/sbin/adduser -n -g 100 -c %m -d /dev/null 
-s /bin/false %m$
         logon script = %U.BAT
         logon path =
         logon drive = M:
         domain logons = Yes
