 After following this guide http://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Windows7 to
get Windows 7 on a Samba domain and the profile actually syncing for a
user first I get the following error. I tried disjoining and rejoining
to the domain and that works fine. However, logging in seems to result
in not syncing the profile. This is with samba version 3.4.6.
