I tried both the "sambaRefuseMachinePwdChange = 1" in LDAP and the
test in the network wizard. The wizard fails with a RPC error message.
The setting in ldap had no effect. In fact, almost all machines are
having this issue now, but it seems to be occasional. Once in a while,
someone just logs in OK. It happens that the error is now happening on
every windows machine, not just the the ones with windows 7. =S
