Hi Ryan,

Yes - unfortunately, it also holds true of A.02.03.04.  Sorry that you 
spent so much time on it.

I can send you a tool that will allow you to write the CIFS/Samba 
computer object to the W2008 AD and generate a keytab file on the 
CIFS/Samba server.  When you start CIFS/Samba with "use kerberos keytab 
= yes", your users can authenticate to and mount CIFS/Samba shares, but 
any of the net commands that require auth-n will fail (including join). 
  winbind will not start either.  Still working on this as a W/A.  I do 
not have a timeframe for 3.0.28 (or .31) for CIFS yet.

PS - the tool is "unsupported".
