Take a look at  Chapter 7 of Samba by Example.  "Adding Domain Member
Servers and Clients".  It shows a few ways to do this.

I think I've read almost any related article on the net. Reason I  
posted to this mailing list is that I can't fix my problem with the  
current documentation.

Outcome of [getent passwd] and [getent group], [wbinfo -u] and [wbinfo  
-g] are ok. Kerberos auth. using [kinit] is ok too. Adding the linux  
box to the domain is ok too. Logging in with a wrong user or wrong  
password is ok. Just that last step, logging in with an correct user  
and pass results in a NT SERVER IO TIME OUT.
