[Samba] problems with msdfs proxy in AD environment

we have two solaris file servers which export the file with nfs to the
unix client and with samba to the windows clients. Both file servers are
member of an active directory domain.
Now we have the idea to use a new samba file server which contains the
shares of both file servers and redirect the request to the correct file
server with msdfs proxy.
On this new fileserver I configure
encrypt passwords = Yes
lanman auth = no
ntlm auth = no
client ntlmv2 auth = yes
workgroup = xxx
security = ads
realm = XXX.RZ.RWTH-AACHEN.DE
password server = xxx.rz.RWTH-Aachen.DE
host msdfs = yes
msdfs proxy = \yyy.rz.rwth-aachen.de\homes
browseable = no
I can connect to the homes share from a windows client which is not a
member of the AD. But if I use a windows client which is member of the
domain I get the error message
"The drive could not be mapped because no network was found"
What could be the reason?
We use samba 3.0.23a without winbind. The unix and the windows site have
different user administrations. The samba users have the same account
name on both systems.
Thanks in advance,
