Thanks for your reply.

I tried this, after a while I realised that I should have a local root
account in the workstations smbpasswd file.

When I then tried
use \\wksta -Uuser%pass -W wksta
with user=local root account,
and then again a createuser -jdomainname, it finally worked!

Thanks a lot.
(by the way, I should have got it working by myself, since the hint you gave
was also given by rpcclient, when it failed. Sorry :-)

Best regards,
