Can you join other computers to the domain?

We actually renamed the machine in case something was cached on the server.

the IP log file is empty and the NETBIOS name log file only shows traffic
when we've connected while in a workgroup instead of the domain.

As mentioned before, we upgraded to 3.x and I inadvertently changed the SID
the network in the process.

        domain logons = Yes
        local master = Yes
        security = user
        os level = 127
        preferred master = Yes

Note again that all our 2000 and xp boxes are fine.

we're using the LDAP backend and we did that.
