I have 12.10 server configured as a Samba Domain controller. My Windows workstation can login fine. When I check the user profiles on Windows, It shows some users as DOMAIN\username and some as HOSTNAME\username.

Not sure if I have some not setup right or if this is suppose to happen. So far it doesn't seem to be causing any problems with logins. This shows on Windows 7 workstation and Windows XP workstation with no roaming profiles.

I think I found a solution. While looking up a NETLOGON error on XP, found this:

I applied the fix and it now shows the DOMAIN\username in the profiles settings.
