Thanks for you interest in my problem.  I don't think I am  trying to get
Samba to do something that it was not intended to do.  All I am saying is
that using the same config on Samba 3.0 as a PDC with windows XP machines
behaves different than Samba3x with Windows 7 and windows XP machines.

I just now tried to join an XP machine to the network and got a similar
error.  Maybe this is a Samba3x.3.3.8 issue?

I don't expect Samba to provide AD services.  I simply want single
sign-on on my network.

Has anyone been able to get Samba3x.3.3.8 to work as a PDC?
