my last post was about upscale configuration for my WinXP clients,
because I believed I had it working, but ...
Next day I booted the client and .... it wouldnt let me log onto the
domain again. :-(
I am using Samba 2.2.8a with Ldap backend which works great in workgroup
Joining the domain is very easy and works well, but then after rebooting
"Es kann keine Verbindung mit der Domäne hergestellt werden, da der
Domaincontroller nicht verfügbar ist bzw. das Computerkonto nicht
gefunden wurde. Wiederholen Sie den Vorgang später...." [german]
In english it is something like:
"No connection to the domain could be established, because the
Domaincontroller is not available or the computeraccount is not found.
Please retry later...."
(very funny:-> "retry later", M$ joke!!)

The were told to do the reg hack "requiresignorseal" = 0, deactivate
encryption (for client/server) change to use "LM and NTLM".
These settings are already all done on my systems, but still I get the
The computer can connect to the samba server on share basis manually.
The strange thing is, that it doesnt matter wether I type in my passwort
correct or false, i always "in milliseconds" get the same messagebox.
There is no communication between the workstation and the samba server.
I also found that there is something like "fast logons" which uses
asyncron logon which is default. I also tried the syncron mode. No success.
The test clients are PC a Windows XP where the domainlogon worked, but
stopped working now and PC b which was a fresh install and domainlogon
Can you help?
How can I debug this?
