Hi Andrew,

According to the Samba website, Samba version support Windows 7 Domain 
Logons started with Samba 3.2.12.


Samba versions supporting Windows7 Domain Logon

Support for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 using Samba Domain 
Controllers has been added to the following versions:

     Samba 3.4 or later
     Samba 3.3.5 or later
     Samba 3.3.2, 3.3.3 and 3.3.4 (with NOTES)
     Samba 3.2.12 or later

We successfully tested Windows 7 Ultimate (Build 2600) with Samba 3.4.0, 
Samba 3.3.7, Samba 3.3.5, Samba 3.3.2, Samba 3.2.15, Samba 3.2.12 and 
other versions. Also tested Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise with Samba 

If you use older versions, Windows 7 box still can join the Samba Domain 
but after rebooting, you will receive an error message: "the trust 
relation between this workstation and the primary domain failed" and no 
one can logon as any domain user.
