argh... I think that you could migrate/upgrade samba from system and
version without needing to re-add all machines to the domain. I made
some similiar movement from samba 2.2.8a on Redhat 8 to 3.0.14a on
Debian Sarge after some troubles some days ago. I'm actually documenting
the movement before post anything here :(

In theory, you can aggregate a domain user in the local machine users
accounts to give access to some administrative rights ( for example,
install printers ).

May be the local machine is not recognizing the user as a trusted users
from the domain ? ( This launches another question: Are the machines
really log in the domain? . netlogon script is being created well? Try
to delete netlogon.bat in one user and try to begin session on the
windows machine again. If netlogon.bat is created again, the domain log
on process is OK, if not then your problem could be a bad domain client
