Is the Unix UID used for anything in the machine account?
Could I do this:
smbpasswd -a -m MACHINE
<join domain, everything works>
Or does that account also have to exist in the passwd file. I read somewhere
a long time ago that the uid is only used to make sure the rid is unique for
machine accounts. For user accounts, it's used in a set*id call, obviously.
