Hello Andrew!

I am happy that I must not use lanman ...

I am afraid that it has nothing to do with the regular machine password
change, as I set the Reject Machine Password change on sambas domain  
ldap entry
and additionally I set a registry entry in windows to disable machine  
account password change.
After that - i took the clients out of the domain and rejoined them .... still
the same netlogon errors.

I have no hint where to troubleshoot - maybe setting windows 7 to ntlmv2 only
