samba-users: [Samba] multi-homed samba PDC and NetApp filers

[Samba] multi-homed samba PDC and NetApp filers

We are having a problem getting a NetApp filer to re-join a samba
domain after a move to a new network. The filer worked fine with
samba before the move. Apologies in advance for the long missive.

I've tried the following:

  - re-running the CIFS setup program on the filer
  - removing the problem filer's samba account, replacing it, and
    re-running the setup program on the filer
  - creating a new machine account on the samba server and re-
    running the setup program on the filer

None of these worked. I also looked through a number of mailing
list postings about NetApp filers and samba but didn't find any-
thing to help.

Has anyone gone through this before and provide insight into
this problem?

We have the following:

  samba server:
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3
    kernel 2.6.18 i868
    samba 3.0.33
    multiple network interfaces: 10.142.36.64/27
                                                              10.142.36.96/27
                                                              10.142.36.192/26

  NetApp filer #1:
    NetApp Release 7.2.4L1
    connected through VPN to samba server network 10.142.36.192/26

  NetApp filer #2:
    NetApp Release 7.3.1.1
    connected through VPN to samba server network 10.142.36.64/27

Each filer can ping the samba server. CIFS connections from each
filer are registered by the samba server and are logged in the file:
  0.0.0.0.log

Each of the filers moved to a new network. Filer #1 rejoined the
domain but filer #2 can't.

A tcpdump of the unsuccessful transaction is:

Part of the samba log 0.0.0.0.log related to filer #2 is:
