Additional info after diffing the 3.6 smb.conf and the current one:

seems as if the order has been turned around, back then they had:

netbios name = U1NORAS
netbios aliases = samba

now we have

netbios aliases = u1customer
netbios name = SAMBA

I took the optimized smb.conf suggested by Rowland back then, I'd have 
to check but it seems he turned these 2 around

No offense intended here, just an observation!

On 30.5. Rowland suggested:

Try this smb.conf:

     unix charset = iso8859-15

     security = ads
     realm = CUSTOMER.INTRA
     workgroup = CUSTOMER
     netbios aliases = samba
     server string = U1CUSTOMER

(no more "netbios name" in here ...)

Hm, it seems I messed that up.

My explanation is that somehow it worked for the first 2 weeks or so, 
then something timed out (could that be that the DNS-info for the alias 
is kept alive for such a long time?)

greets, Stefan (still learning)
