I have the same issue Matthias, however some users can logon from the
"problematic" workstation.. but some cant. If I remove the workstation and
readd it... its ok for sometime.   Anyone have any insight?

Dear List,

I have a Win2K server running as a member server of a
Samba Domain, but this server can not authorize users
due to the missing domain controller which can not be
found by the Win2K server (Windows Log Event: #5719).

The strange thing is:
- the samba pdc is up and running and is authenticating users
  all the time
- I see log entries of the win2k server, so it has a connection
  to the pdc
- I could remove the win2k server from our domain and re-join
  it again, so the pdc should be there.

The smb.conf of the PDC:
        workgroup = KERNZEIT
        netbios name = LOGIN
        null passwords = no
        security = user
        server string = %h server (Samba %v)
        announce version=5.0
        #LDAP STUFF
        passdb backend = ldapsam:"ldap:// ldap://"
        ldap suffix = dc=kernzeit,dc=com
        ldap machine suffix =
        ldap admin dn = "cn=admin,dc=kernzeit,dc=com"
        ldap ssl = no 
        ldap user suffix = "dc=kernzeit,dc=com"
        ldap group suffix = ou=groups,ou=nss
        #LOG STUFF
        log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
        max log size = 10000
        log level = 3 
        syslog = 0
        interfaces =
        hosts allow = 10.1. 10.99.
        bind interfaces only = yes
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
        encrypt passwords = true
        guest account = nobody
        obey pam restrictions = no
        admin users = @domadmins
        add machine script = /usr/local/sbin/smbldap-useradd.pl -w -g
smb-machines -s /bin/false %m
        unix password sync = yes 
        passwd program = /usr/local/sbin/smbldap-passwd.pl %u
        passwd chat = *New\spassword\s:* %n\n *Retype\snew\spassword*
%n\n *successfully*

        panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d
        wins support = yes
        dns proxy = yes 
        preferred master = yes
        local master = yes
        time server = yes
        os level = 67
        domain master = yes
        domain logons = yes
        #LOGON STUFF
        logon path = \{}\{}%L\{}Profiles\{}%u
        logon script = login.bat
        logon drive = H:
        logon home = \\LOGIN\%U
        template homedir = /home/%U

        unix charset = iso8859-15
        dos charset = cp850

Any help?!? Would be really great!

Thanks a lot,
