I wanted to be sure you all were aware of an issue that's come up in recent Insider builds of Windows 11. I upgraded my local Windows 11 to the most recent beta build 22581 and had to roll back because I was unable to login to the system. The logs on my Samba domain controller indicate the authentication is successful, but Windows says I entered an incorrect password. 

According to the u/BFeely1, in a Reddit post[1], they've submitted feedback about it, but I don't have much hope Microsoft is going to make it a high priority to resolve. I wasn't able to find any reports to this mailing list or in any Samba related bug tracking for the project or any distribution trackers mentioning the issue.

I would like to help if I can, but I would need some direction on what info would be useful.
