What form is your domain name in the previous version of Samba?  - DOMAIN.COM
etc or just DOMAIN?

I recently ran into a similar problem - 
Samba PDC workgroup = DOMAIN.COM support .

When I went to access the domain from a windows machine it would only find a
domain controller for the DOMAIN domain not the DOMAIN.COM domain even if
DOMAIN.COM was the value for workgroup in the smb.conf file.

I am wondering if samba has stopped supporting dotted domain names in their
recent releases.
