Hello all,

version is 3.0.23d (the same happens with 3.0.21c )
running as a PDC

OS is Linux, (from SuSE 9.3) on dual Opterons.

After upgrading from 3.0.11, all Windows-NT4-sp6 machines were no longer
DOMAIN-members - WinXP or Win2000 members work as usual. Trying to get
the WNT4 machines back into the domain gave about this message
( translated from german text ) on the NT4-Machines:

"To change or to add an account in the domain is not possible.
 The assigned account informations do not give you enough privileges
 to create or change an account."

A part of the logs:
