Thanks for your reply Samba is meant to be a PDC. Odd it was working at all
as I obviously messed up. I've changed the security to user and added domain
logons. I'm not using LDAP so I've removed that from the smb.conf 

I'm still finding however, that the Windows PCs logon and join the domain no
problem but the Linux PCs using  Winbind wont, they used to even with the
messed up config on the old version of SAMBA I was using - any other advice?
