[Samba] Domain controller - LDAP

I migrated my Samba server auth to OpenLDAP, and I'm having a problem with 

The workstations (Windows 2000 Pro) are logging and working usually. The 
problem is when an workstation tries to access another workstation directly. 
Before I to migrate to LDAP, the access works fine.

For instance. I'm on the station1, Start, Run, \\station2. It opens a dialog 
box asking for an username and password. I enter with a username valid in 
Domain Server, and it doesn't work.

The stranger is that with a 'tail -f' on the Openldap log, I see station2 
doing a request about the user that I tryed accessing from station1. But even 
so, the station2 tell that the password is incorrect.

My Samba is the latest (2.2.8a) and my OpenLDAP is 2.0.23. My system is Debian 
GNU/Linux 3.0 (woody).

Samba was compiled using --with-winbind-ldap-hack --with-ldapsam --with-pam 

OpenLDAP is using samba.schema from Samba 2.2.8a. I used import_smbpasswd.pl 
to import accounts from smbpasswd to LDAP.

I think it's lacking some account on the LDAP. I created an account to 
Administrator and to nobody, according to Samba-PDC-LDAP-HowTo. I also tryed 
creating a root account with uid 0, but it didn't work.

Would anyone know tell me something?

I use Samba about some years, but it's first time that I integrating it with 
OpenLDAP, using as a domain controller.

Best regards.
