The Samba wiki page related to the use of Windows 7 with Samba contains 
the following statements:

There are currently two registry settings required to be added on the 
Windows 7 client prior to joining a Samba Domain. These are:

             DWORD  DomainCompatibilityMode = 1
             DWORD  DNSNameResolutionRequired = 0


Do *not* edit any other registry parameters (NETLOGON) that have been 
seen in the wild. If you have already modified your Windows 7 registry, 
please make sure to reset the keys to their default values.

If you have changed the NETLOGON Parameters, make sure and turn them 
back to '1' as shown below:
