Samba: W2k clients cannot login after joining domain

I have Samba setup running as a PDC on a RH 7.3 box. (Samba version 2.2.5).

I have connectivity to the box and I was able to access all the shares without any problems. However, when I configured Samba as a PDC and joined the w2k clients to the domain, I was unable to login to the network. I recieved an error message on the w2k machines stating "A duplicate name exits on the network". My smb.conf is as follows:

workgroup = CENTRALCITY
netbios name = CENTRALCITY
server string = %L running Samba %v
encrypt passwords = Yes
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
domain admin group = @adm
domain logons = Yes
os level = 64
preferred master = True
domain master = True

comment = Home Directories
path = %H
valid users = %S
read only = No
create mask = 0700
security mask = 0700
directory mask = 0700
directory security mask = 0700
browseable = No

path = /SharedFiles
create mask = 0770
security mask = 0770
directory mask = 0770
directory security mask = 0770
guest ok = Yes

path = /SharedFiles/netlogon
read only = No
create mask = 0777
directory mask = 0777
browseable = No
share modes = No

Any help would be appreciated.

Chack names of machines in your network. From the error you get, there are 2 machines with the same name.

Figured it out.

It's not that there were machine names on my network that were the identical. It was the smb.conf file that had two identical settings. The Workgroup/domain name was set to CentralCity, while the NetBIOS name was also set to CentralCity. That is what the problem was. Once I removed the NetBIOS name everything was cool
