Spell out your words, please.

And no, we can't, not without some useful details. Things like error(s) you're getting from the Linux server, log file messages, version/distro of Linux, etc. All we know is that you've got a Linux 'domain', and you're having problems with your Windows 7 box.

Windows problems are better off on a Microsoft forum. If you've done research, and see a problem on the Linux server, we can help, if you tell us what the problem IS. Upgrading Samba is a good start, and (if it's been recommended), probably a good solution.
