    I am using samba in ads mode with a Windows SBS 2003 domain controller.  
samba: 3.0.24-6  
server os: Debian Etch.  
client os: Vista Business SP1 
The system has been running effectively for more than 4 years with Windows XP machines. I now have a Vista laptop that I am using on the system and have hit an odd problem. Whilst shares that don't specify valid users still map with no problem shares that do will not map. 
Relevant debug  code from logs is here: 
Is this a common problem? 
   workgroup = DOMAIN 
   netbios name = Legolas 
   winbind separator = + 
   idmap uid = 10000-20000 
   idmap gid = 10000-20000 
   winbind enum users = yes 
   winbind enum groups = yes 
   winbind use default domain = no 
   template homedir = /repository/Personal/%S 
   template shell = /bin/bash 
   security = ads 
   encrypt passwords = true 
   realm = DOMAIN.LOCAL 
   password server = HUB 
   log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m 
   max log size = 1000 
   log level = 5 
   client signing = no 
   client ntlmv2 auth = yes 
        comment = Personnel 
        path = "/repository/Personnel" 
        create mask = 0770 
        directory mask = 0770 
        valid users = MI+chriss,MI+toms,MI+edm,MI+pmorris 
        writeable = yes 
        browseable = no 
        #force group = Personnel 
        force user = root 
        hide files = /Thumbs.db/ 
        #dos filetimes = yes
