for clients not member of the domain, you need to specify the domain
in the username box when connecting to a member server.


when the domain name is unspecified the member server
uses MemberServerName\UserName and that don't work
(if you do not define such an user on the member server
local password database)

this behavior is rather new for samba but normal for a windows server.
