We are running samba 2.2.8a  as a PDC with openLDAP

Using the tools that come from IDEALX we have created several machine 
accounts Then we have attempted to join the windows domain and login 
with varying results.

One machine acts as expected and we can log in and out freely

A second machine let's one user log in but if that user changes his 
password, he like all the other users is told that his username and 
password do not match.

All other machines when we attempt to join the domain take a long 
time (3-4 minutes) before telling us welcoming us to the domain. The 
machine is rebooted and when a user tries to log into the domain they 
are told the domain is not available.

One point to not about this third group is that the machine is not 
issued with a valid password . The machines' LDAP records show


Has anyone got any idea what might be going on?
