Hi Roy, I've been struggling with these errors for some time whilst attempting to get Windows SBS 2003 to backup to my samba box. I've discovered that if I access the share by its IP address rather than its name everything works. I would guess that this has something to do with DNS entries on the DC but as yet I haven't discovered the trick to get it working. Have you changed the hostname or netbios name of the samba box since you joined the domain? Changed DNS entries? Of course your problem might not necessarily be solved by the IP address trick but it might be worth a try. I don't fully understand how DNS and AD are related but I believe they are quite closely linked, I'm sure there are others on the list who should be able to shed some light on it. Also, there is more than likely some documentation related to the DNS requirements of AD on the website.

Good luck,
