samba-users: [Samba] Server Migration

[Samba] Server Migration

I have a problem after migrating from Samba server a Debian Woddy / Samba
3.0.4 server to a new Debian Lenny / Samba 3.5.3
(Debian-package Sernet downloaded from the site Samba: Windows Seven
computers for the next to connect).

I followed the method described in the manual Samba ( recovered
from the site) SAMBA3-ByExample.pdf, Chapter 8.3.2

The new server has the same name, the same SID for the server, the same SID
for domain as the old server.
the SID of users (users or machines) is the same as the old server
the SID of the groups is also similar.

However, authentication is denied for 70% of computers with the error
_netr_ServerAuthenticate3: netlogon_creds_server_check failed. Rejecting
auth request from client xxx machine account xxx$.

All computers are Windows XP Pro.
I deleted the machine account and I recreated: the problem persists.
I did change the log level of 2 to 10, but nothing in the log file of the
machine indicates to me the cause of the error.

I do not understand why the authentication works for some items and not for
I found nothing in the various manuals (paper and electronic) and existing
forums on the Internet.

Can you tell me solutions?
Thank you for your help
