    connecting to domain controlled by Samba

    I have a samba PDC and have about 8 XP clients and an Ubuntu client. I'm trying to get them all to join the domain but neither will. First off, the XP machines:
    I go to join the domain the usual way, it prompts for username/password with permission to join the domain and comes up with a message 'Welcome to the domain'. After restarting i get the logon screen and select to login to the domain but after putting the correct username/password in it shows an error message saying the Server may be offline or unavailable or there is no machine account. There is definitely a machine account on the Samba server, it is not this. the logfile from /var/log/samba: for the client show lots of 'Can't become connected user' messages. I can post the whole thing if requested.

    On the ubuntu client, this is what i get:

    colin@cycle-12:~$ sudo net join -W CYSOL -U frc
    [sudo] password for colin:
    Connection failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE
    Could not connect to server SRV-01
    The username or password was not correct.
    Connection failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE

    both machines definitely have machine accounts on samba.
    Any ideas would be much appreciated

    thanks in advance
