If some machines show the users, surely this means that Samba is
working and that the problem lies with the windows machines. Have they
all been updated to the same level ? If not, are the ones that show the
users, not been updated, or do they have an update that the others
don't. Are they the same type i.e. 'pro' or 'home' ?
