Setting log level 2 gives:

[2010/09/10 18:02:41,  2] rpc_server/srv_samr_nt.c:4118(_samr_LookupDomain)
   Returning domain sid for domain ECS ->

   netlogon_creds_server_check: credentials check failed.

   _netr_ServerAuthenticate3: netlogon_creds_server_check failed. 
Rejecting auth request from client W7 machine account W7$

   check_ntlm_password:  Authentication for user [W7] -> [W7] FAILED 

Is that last line significant?
