Did you ever solve your problem?
I have exactly the same message. But my problem occur when I migrated XP
clients from a Win2K/AD to a Samba/PDC of the same domain name. This is a
correct message because the domain did downgraded to NT4 stile. The question
is how does it find the Logon Servers, what registry parameter to twist to
make it locate NT4 style LOGON Servicers?

Please send me mail directly at ksun at abinitio.com.
