yes. Thing is that the machine account is not recreated correctly. At the
moment, i have added it manually by

smbldap-useradd -w machinename$
smbldap-usermod -a machinename$

apparently the samba information is missing if i just use smbldap-useradd -w

Could this be a bug? Doing it manually works, but it should be enough with
just the first command.

After joining the domain on that pc, i can log in. No errors anymore. It
goes very slowly though and leaves me on an empty screen. But that might be
another problem. I am gonna try another pc to make sure.

Anyway, i'll have to find a way to automaticly join the domain again,
because doing this manually for 200 machines is no fun at all!
