Samba Problem after upgrading


Hi,

I need some expert advice here regarding the samba problem after upgrading. All data migrated with the appropriate permission.
I transfered the /etc/passwd, /etc/shadow and /etc/samba/* files to the new server.

Previous working version (Slackware v11 - 32bits - Old Hardware)
- samba-3.0.25a-i486-1_slack11.0
- XP Pro users are able to login and authenticate (NT DOMAIN)
- Login script and file sharing with permission are okay too

Upgraded to (Slackware 13.1 64bits - New hardware)
- samba-3.5.2-x86_64-1
- if the PC did not logoff, the file sharing and permission works fine.
- If they logoff, they will not able to re-logon.
- If I detach the PC from domain and then rejoin domain, I will be able to login to the domain, So I guess the samba configuration is working

I read it has to do with Machine Trust Account or something.

Questions:
- Can I convert or make samba 3.5 recognize the Machine Trust Account on the new hardware?
- How can I check if the if the entry is successfully registered as machine trust account?
I checked and found the 'machinename$' (example) in all three places /etc/passwd, /etc/shadow and /etc/samba/private/passdb.tdb
I see no differences on the one PC that I unjoin and rejoin the domain versus those old domain name join to the old hardware.

Any help would be very much appreciated.
Note: I will continue to google and try to find the solution.
Hope someone can help me and save me some time

Thanks.
