recently I got my samba/ldap/pdc setup up and running with xp clients.

Server: centos 5.5, openldap-2.3.43-12 and samba3x-3.3.8.

The new challenge: adding Windows 7 Clients and upgrading to samba 3.3.x

I followed a posting from the centos forum (1) which worked so far for
the samba update breaking nothing for xp.

Than I installed a windows 7 client with the latest patches, changed the
registry settings (2) and tried a domyin join after a reboot.

But there is only an error that the user is unknown or the password wrong.

AFAIK I'm using the user/password which work with the xp client.

What may be the error? Where can I see which user shld be allowed to join?

Thanks for any suggestion and best regards,
