I added a new user to and existing PDC and that user only can't access 
the Member Server, all other users can.

When trying to map a share on a Windows machine the users is prompted 
for a network password.

I added the user first as a Linux user using useradd, and that login works
Next I used smbpasswd -a to add the user to the PDC, that logon works on 
the PDC.

On the Member Server

wbinfo -u lists the new user

getent passwd lists the user

net usersidlist lists the user

net rpc user does not return anything

Smbclient fails with this error
> Domain=[ATLANTA] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.0.28a]
> tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED
