The Samba wiki page related to the use of Windows 7 with Samba contains
the following statements:

There are currently two registry settings required to be added on the
Windows 7 client prior to joining a Samba Domain. These are:

             DWORD DomainCompatibilityMode = 1
             DWORD DNSNameResolutionRequired = 0


Do *not* edit any other registry parameters (NETLOGON) that have been

please make sure to reset the keys to their default values.

If you have changed the NETLOGON Parameters, make sure and turn them
back to '1' as shown below:
