    I have four CentOS 5.2 servers and one FreeBSD server running Samba with
    Active Directory authentication and several Macintosh OSX
    workstations/laptops (10.4 & 10.5) that are joined to the domain. The plan
    is to shortly migrate another 20+ OSX workstations/laptops into the domain
    but if I'm getting these errors now I will be in real trouble with the other
    workstations joined.

    They operate fine under the domain but I receive DCOM errors every second
    when the SB goes to access them.

    I tried moving them into their own separate OU then blocking inheritance but
    the two GPOs: Windows SBS CSE & User Policy are still being applied.

    I moved the objects to a seperate OU at the root of the domain and blocked
    inheritance but I still get tons of these errors.
