What version of samba are you running?  signorseal patch is no longer needed
for samba3.  Have you added the XP PC manually or do you have an add machine
script (samba3) or add user script (samba2)?  What about a roaming profile

Subject: [K12OSN] Joining XP system to Samba

Ok folks this one is making me nuts.  I am trying to join and XP system
to a Samba domain.  I am using K12LTSP running samba,  Here is the

# Date: 2004/05/14 10:12:23

# Global parameters
        os level = 32
        workgroup = NEWFIELDS
        domain logons = Yes
        dns proxy = No
        passwd program = /usr/sbin/passwd %u
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
        local master = yes
        netbios name = k12ltsp
        ldap ssl = no
        max log size = 50
        logon home = \\k12ltsp\%U
        min passwd length = 2
        pam password change = yes
        log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
        security = domain
        unix password sync = yes
        domain master = yes
        wins support = true
        encrypt passwords = yes
        logon drive = h://

        comment = Home Directories
        read only = No
        browseable = No
        writable = yes
        valid users = %S
        create mode = 0600
        directory mode = 0700
        logon home = \\k12ltsp\%U
        hide files = /*.pst/

When I try to connect a machine (SAU-SPDC-0008  machine name) to the
NEWFIELDS domain I get:

The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "NEWFIELDS"
The username could not be found.

I am also running SME server.  DHCP has been disabled on SME.  User
accounts are on the K12LTSP box.  THere is one user account on SME.
Which adds another question, how do I tell that the K12LTSP server is
the only one authenticating???
