A good question for you guys.

I tried to add my newly installed Samba to NT domain but I got the following
messages. Do you know why I am unable to joining the domain. 

lagos0# ./smbpasswd -j nignt01 -r nigntdc1
doing parameter share modes = yes
doing parameter lock directory = /var/adm
pm_process() returned Yes
Added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
