Hi all!

The problem relates to joining linux based clients to our PDC (all
Samba 3.5.1 running on CentOS5).

For some time Profiles, Homes, Netlogon and in general adding new
Windows machines has been working fine but when we try to add a new
linux client (CLIENT-FS1) to the PDC the following errors are

/var/log/messages - SERVER-PDC

Mar 31 18:13:55 localhost smbd[30810]: [2010/03/31 18:13:55.650347,
0] rpc_server/srv_netlog_nt.c:475(get_md4pw)
Mar 31 18:13:55 localhost smbd[30810]: get_md4pw: Workstation

Mar 31 18:13:55 localhost smbd[30810]: _netr_ServerAuthenticate2:
failed to get machine password for account CLIENT-FS1$:

Domain join cmd on CLIENT-FS1:

"net rpc join -S SERVER-PDC -U root%<password>"

returns: Joined domain NTDOMAIN

The machine is added to our LDAP directory just like the Windows machines.

The following error is reported when trying to join the linux client
(again) with the newly created entry:

Mar 31 18:40:12 localhost smbd[30946]: [2010/03/31 18:40:12.162514,
