[Samba] XP Woes

Hi all,

I must be missing something.  Upgraded yesterday from 2.2.6x to 2.2.7a
(hoping to fix the problem) running on FreeBSD 4.7-R-p3.

After joining the domain successfully with two different machines similar
messages appear in the client logs:

[2003/01/11 13:50:24, 0] rpc_server/srv_samr.c:api_samr_set_userinfo(670)
api_samr_set_userinfo: Unable to unmarshall SAMR_Q_SET_USERINFO.

Trying to logon to the domain gives this:

Windows cannot connect to the domain either because the domain controller is
down or otherwise unavailable or because your computer account was not

Nothing else is logged by samba or in xp.  Note that there's 4 other XP
computers logging into the domain without problem.

In computer configuration\windows settings\security settings\local
policies\security options
Domain member: Digitally encrypt or sign secure channel data (when possible)
is disabled.

I assume the machine accounts are right or I couldn't join the
domain--although I did try
smbpasswd -a -m wksta$  with and without the '$'---but finally without.

Browsing the network works, and shares can be attached.  Just can't logon to
the domain. It's got to be something on the clients?

I've gone through the faqs--I'm probably missing something stupid in front
of my face.  Like I said there's 4 other xp clients.

Pointers at docs, suggestions, rtfms and insults gratefully accepted!
