Windows 7 and Samba

Yet another post on the Windows 7 & SAMBA subject:

To be able to join Windows 7 stations into a Samba controlled domain you must do the following steps:

- Make sure you have samba version 3.3.4
We also did try with 3.3.9 and 3.4.3 but have not been able to get it working in our environment....

- In the registry of the windows 7 system change these settings

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanManWorkstation\Parameters]
"DomainCompatibilityMode"=dword:00000001
"DNSNameResolutionRequired"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Netlogon\Parameters]
"requiresignorseal"=dword:00000000
"requirestrongkey"=dword:00000000



You should now be able to join the domain and login as well.
