[Samba] Samba not working the same on all servers

 I have the same smb.conf on all four servers.  So I am not sure about
your comment about the system policies.  Three of the servers (that work
perfect) are all in the same room.  The one with issues is in a whole
other city and different network.

On this machine that has issues.  There are 30 samba users.  5 of those
users are in the midwest all in the same building, same floor with in
two cubes of each other.  BUT.  One of those 5 have no connection
problems at all, just the other four.

Does this help?

Are you using system policies?  You might have overriding user/group
You might want to check that the server has the same nt policy file in
the netlogon share as the other servers.
Does it matter which client box those four users try to log on from?

I assume the box that isn't working is the 'user test' box?  It seems my
test boxes always have testing crud that bites me in the butt.
Also, what do those four users have in common that the other 26 don't?
