Ah, if you are attempting to join the domain, then it could be that the
user name has not been set up properly. Samba can map Windows users if
the names are different or use the Windows name if it is the same as a
Unix name (handy in XP Home workstations which don't have domain logins).
Have you joined the computer to the domain?
Have you set up the Windows user account on the Samba server?
Have you enabled the Windows user account on the Samba server?
