[Samba] WinXP PDC logon problem...

Hi all,

I've seen this raised as an issue on other mailing
lists, but I've not seen a solution, and I've seen a
number of notes to post to this alias instead, so
here I am.

I've setup Samba as a PDC running on Solaris. I have
a WinXP (latest patch levels) PC which I want to
join to the domain. I can successfully join the
domain using root authentication, but I am unable to
logon with any of my NIS users (stored in both
/etc/passwd and smbpasswd)...?

I've seen a comment to edit a Windows registry
setting (requiresignorseal) and I tried this, but
nothing changed.

Is there a solution to this issue, or will I be
fored back to the hell of an Active Directory/WinNT
PDC?  :(
