[Samba] My PDC Conversion Project

It did work with 2.2.8a, but that was apparently before the release of this hotfix. I verified that my problem is infact the same hotfix issue. Machines I have that don't have this hotfix work fine even on the new setup. The ones that do have it get the "domain not avalible" error.

When they log in, they get the logon scripts to execute, and anything else I do to list users from the domain controller, they come up. Everything else is just working fine, so I am at a loss on why this one specific thing is broke.

Known issue with MS04-11/KB828241.  (see many other posts on this
list).  The fact that it works with Samba 2.2.8 is interesting.  I have
reproduced it locally, but it not clear if there are easy solutions.

Can you please confirm that it did work with 2.2.8a?
