Cannot Log onto Domain Member Workstation After Joining Domain

After successfully joining the domain, user logons fail with one of two messages: one to the effect that the domain controller cannot be found; the other claims that the account does not exist in the domain or that the password is incorrect. This may be due to incompatible settings between the Windows client and the Samba-3 server for schannel (secure channel) settings or smb signing settings. Check your Samba settings for client schannel , server schannel , client signing , server signing by executing:

testparm -v | grep channel
 and looking for the value of these parameters.

Also use the MMC Local Security Settings. This tool is available from the Control Panel. The Policy settings are found in the Local Policies/Security Options area and are prefixed by Secure Channel:..., and Digitally sign... .

It is important that these be set consistently with the Samba-3 server settings.
