If you must stick with using Samba 3.0.x, try "use kerberos keytab = yes" in your smb.conf file. Also make sure that you define the location of your Kerberos keytab in your krb5.conf file as "default_keytab_name = /etc/krb5.keytab".

I works with a big campagny and I cannot update the samba version on linux Suse : its very complex and require to respect a qualification process.
It exists another means to resolve this problem ?

Both "kerberos method" and "dedicated keytab file" are introduced at Samba 3.4.0. You use too old version.
