[Samba] Samba Authentication with a windows password server

Hi all, 

I'm trying to set up Samba on a client's computer so that it authenticates
the users which are accessing it via a windows domain controller and
kerberos. I've been following various tutorials and it all seems to go
through correctly but when the client tries to access the shares, it doesn't
accept his credentials and won't get past the login window.

The only failure seems to be within the nmbd log which says this (I've
changed the domain name / IPs):

[2009/10/05 16:27:43,  0]
  register_name_response: server at IP rejected our name
registration of DOMAIN<00> IP with error code 6.
[2009/10/05 16:27:43,  0] nmbd/nmbd_mynames.c:my_name_register_failed(35)
  my_name_register_failed: Failed to register my name DOMAIN<00> on subnet

Now the odd thing is that is the samba machine but is a proxy server and doesn't seem to be referenced anywhere.
Could this be a result of the windows machines not being set up correctly or
would this be something incorrectly set up on the linux machine?

I can't seem to figure it out.

Many thanks.
