I have a network consisting of 12 Windows 7 Professional 64-bit machines and one 64-bit Ubuntu/Samba 3 server configured as a PDC using roaming profiles.

I can join the domain windows XP professional and login using any user from the domain, but when I try using Windows 7 professional 64-bit it will join the domain but after a reboot it says that the trust relationship between the workstation and the server failed and will not login with any user except the local account.

I tried changing the two registry entries listed at samba.org for windows 7, but I still get the same results.   My samba version is 3.6.15

Anyone know the trick to making this work

"the trust relationship between the workstation and the primary domain controller failed"

I tried disabling the firewall on all connections then rebooted.  

At login I got the same message:
"the trust relationship between the workstation and the primary domain controller failed"

When I join the domain it creates the machine accounts just fine, but for some reason it doesn't trust them.after a reboot.

I finally got past this problem using this registry script:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

; Win7/Samba 3.4.x - Workstation Share
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\lanmanserver\parameters]
"AutoShareWks"=dword:00000001

; Win7/Samba 3.4.x - Compat
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\services\lanmanworkstation\parameters]
"DNSNameResolutionRequired"=dword:00000000
"DomainCompatibilityMode"=dword:00000001
; AllowPlain ....

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\netlogon\parameters]
"DisablePasswordChange"=dword:00000001
"RequireSignOrSeal"=dword:00000001
"RequireStrongKey"=dword:00000001

;Turn off last user logged in stuff.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\system]
"dontdisplaylastusername"=dword:00000001

;Disable the security center stuff annoyances

"SlowLinkDetectEnabled"=dword:00000000
"DeleteRoamingCache"=dword:00000001
"WaitForNetwork"=dword:00000000
"CompatibleRUPSecurity"=dword:00000001

; Can drive you nuts
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
"EnableLUA"=dword:00000000
"LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy"=dword:00000001

;Stupid keys that make the windows 7 sysprep crap out.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup]
"RestartSetup"=dword:00000000

"SystemSetupInProgress"=dword:00000000
"SetupPhase"=dword:00000000
"CmdLine"=""
"OOBEInProgress"=dword:00000000

_________________________________________________________________________________________________

And then setting "RequireSignOrSeal"=dword:00000000

_________________________________________________________________________________________________
For some reason though it did not map my H:\ drive to home directory, although I can access all the shares without issue.
