Hallo all,

first sorry about my english, hope it is not to terrible.
My problem:
I'm using samba 2.0.7pre4 on SuSE Linux 6.3 kernel 2.2.13.
I like to get samba working as an PDC for the domain test. Compiling was
fine, I used the following options:
./configure --prefix=/system/samba 

I created the machine-account for the nt-box in /etc/passwd and with
smbpasswd -a -m c4214-10$.
Now I would join the domain with the nt-box. I changed the entry fom
workgroup to domain and get the following message:
"The update of local security to become a domain member was not possible."
in german:
"Aktualisieren der lokalen Sicherheit, um Mitglied der Domäne zu werden,
nicht möglich." (original message)
There is not any help from NT. By the way, I can see the samba PDC in the
network and I can browse and connect to some shares with a valid
samba-user. Are there any hints?
I will add my smb.conf and the logs as tgz.

Thanks for help.
