Logging in on Samba server fails in Windows 7

Posted: March 26, 2012

Adding the following registry settings in Windows 7 solved this problem for me:

    DWORD  DomainCompatibilityMode = 1
    DWORD  DNSNameResolutionRequired = 0

I found this solution at this page: wiki.samba.org/index.php/Windows7. Unfortunately, this page no longer exists.
