    connecting to domain controlled by Samba


    Hi,
    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
    Password:
    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

    Some more info from the samba log account of the XP client i'm currently using (I've not posted all of it, just some lines of interest):
