at first thanks for your answer. I tried exactly the same with a WIndows 7
Professional and it is working without any problem. So perhaps it's not a
samba or DC problem. But it seems that I'm not the only one
I did everything on a clean Active Directory with no extra users. So I used
the administrator account and tried to create the users. I tried to create the
new users in the "Users" container and inside newly created containers.
