Hi Andrew,

thanks for the patch. Is it possible to add this to the sernet package? 
All I can find is the already compiled .so-File. Or do I have to use the 
samba sources for this test?

I do have a test network with an AD clone, so no worries 
there...Unfortunately I can't find the failing object anywhere on the 
Windows Server or I look wrong. Is it possible, that samba recieves all 
data from the AD but fails when smb1 is not able to join itself to it?
