I have a number of systems running Windows 7/pro 64bit connecting to a
Debian/Wheezy Samba DC. After one was rebooted today, I was unable to
log on with a domain account, with the usual message about being unable
to connect to a domain controller.
After logging on with a local account, I tried rejoining the domain but
was unable - again Windows complained that it can't contact the domain
controller. Re-did the Window registry settings change to allow Win7 to
connect to an NT-style domain but still no luck. Same when I turned off
the firewall. Rebooted multiple times in the process.
I can connect to network shares on the Samba DC (3.6.6) and can connect
with SWAT using the NetBIOS name but others can't connect to shares on
