Thanks! I have the Windows systems using a centralized time server but they were imaged. I'll check on the issue with the SID since I didn't do the images.

im thinking.. 

Time problems, OR, u used an XP image, which was not syspreped on all your pc's. 
( aka, all your pc's have the same SID ) 

Yes, for samba3 this was not a problem, samba4 it is.
