You need to read the docs more carefully -- you need to create a password
in smbpasswd, otherwise you can't log in. Having a password in shadow is
irrelevant to samba in encrypted mode (which is required for domain
service).  Search the archives and FAQ on www.samba.org for information on
how people deal with this requirement.
