I just got two desktops with windows7 64bit pro.

I have the domain setup using samba but it appears that for some reason that windows 7 does not see the domain when i type in the credentials it just kicks it back saying no.

any ideas on what i can do to fix this

According to the Samba wiki you'll need Samba 3.3.7 or Samba 3.4.0 for Windows 7 to be able to logon. It also suggests there are a couple registry entries needed to be added to Windows 7 before joining the Samba domain as well.

any word if windows plans on fixing this? – Crash893 Mar 12 '10 at 20:20
It's not a Windows issue to fix, it's a Samba issue. Perhaps Samba 3.5 won't need these registry settings, perhaps Samba 4, hard to say, especially since I'm not a Samba developer. :) – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Mar 13 '10 at 21:58
