For a windows 7, I modify the following key in the windows registry :

Some calls to check the SAMBA PDC :
•	testparm -v
•	nmblookup -B myboard __SAMBA__
•	nmblookup -M mygroup
•	nmblookup -d 2 '*'
•	findsmb
•	smbclient -L myboard –Uxxx
•	smbclient //myboard/public -Uxxx

Can send me your smb.conf to check.

Yes, tne machines account are created under the "Computers" OU, where samba
