I have a Samba as Primary Domain Controller, and a Windows 2003 Server
machine that joins to the Domain, but when i reboot i cant log in. I
receive a message like: Cant login, the Doiman Controller is not avaiable
or unreachable. Thus i cant login to the domain.

I know the win2003 machine can see the Samba Machine 'cause i can use the
shares, it is not a problem of the users, i have added and enabled some
users. I have the Machine Account, everything seems to be ok.

I has been very difficult to me to search the web as windows 2003 has many
different typos: win2k3, windows 2003, win2003, windows2k3, bla, blah...

Can anybody point me to some docs, i have read all the sambaPDC FAQ and
everything on samba.org. I would really aprecciate if you point me to docs
about Windows 2003 as a member of a Samba as Primary Domain Controller
