What I forgott - I found that with some googling:

HHey guys, the solution for this problem is:

In smb.conf add the follow lines:

         client ntlmv2 auth = yes
         lanman auth = yes
         ntlm auth = Yes

And restart samba....

I have lanman auth on default "no" - but I support ntlmv2 ... do windows 
7 machines still need lanman?
