[Samba] Samba, ldap and machine accounts

some time a go I started to try a migration form our "old" samba PDC
with smbpasswd user backend to a new ldap based.

I got to the point, that users can login to shares and now I'd liked to
set up the server as an PDC with ldap and machine accounts too.

The smbldap-toosl are installed and configured and I can add a machine
to ldap to a certain point.

The ldap entry is created, but when I restart the XP client there is a
pop-up at the login window with the message, that the domain is not
available. (The domain I joined a few minutes ago.)

I restarted the samba server, I restarted the xp client, waited some
time over night for the browser announcement to finish. Deleted the
cached files on the sambe server in  /var/cache/samba/ ...

May be I missed something or deleted something I shouln't ...

The server is centos 5.5, openldap-2.3.43, samba-3.0.33.

The Client is windows xp SP3 with all latest patches and no
modifications to the registry or anything else.

In the logfiles is not clue to me.

Any suggestion or help is appreciate!

Thanks a lot and best regards,

Götz Reinicke
