[Samba] Help with ADS authentication and Samba

I only installed this server with Base RHEL5.5 last week, got samba working on Monday with ADS. By today (probably yesterday or wed) it was now popping up the login box.

When you change the name, what is entailed?
Change the name in RHEL.
Change the name in DNS (windows server)
Rejoin the ads network using net ads join -U

Anything else?

Thanks for the help so far.

Mine used to work with identical config before I upgraded it from Redhat 9. I have a feeling it's related to that - perhaps there's a cache of some sort somewhere that remembers the IP/domain name and doesn't like the fact that something about the server (the SID?) has changed. I reset the netbios cache on the XP client but it made no difference. I might try changing the server name and see if it helps.

I have no idea where to start looking, unfortunately, so it makes it a bit like looking for a needle in a haystack at midnight.
