[Samba] One user can't login on PDC without a network connection

I solved this with the instructions listed below. The problem was that
the domain name for user B was the hostname of the server and not the
'workgroup = HOME'  from smb.conf. Any ideas what caused this problem
in the first place?

Use pdbedit  and make sure that the DOMAIN line contains the correct
domain name:

# pdbedit -Lv your_username

if it doesn't contain the correct domain name do the following:

# pdbedit -i tdbsam -e smbpasswd
# pdbedit -i smbpasswd -e tdbsam
