Have you joined the domain?

this is the source of your issues. See  for the why and how.

You'll have problems like that if your account credentials aren't identical.
By logging in to the domain you're creating a link using a certain set
of credentials. Then by issuing \\samba_server\share and providing a
different set you're working against a longtime/well known limitation
that windows cannot connect to the same network resource using different
credentials...Is the Win 7 Pro by any chance?
It's not impossible but will likely lead to problems if
your not experienced in doing so.
