That means run server manager from your nt start/programs/Administrative
Tools menu and go to Computer pulldown menu there and click on "Add to
Domain" - there you will specify that the Computer Type is Windows NT
Workstation or Server, and in the Computer Name field, you will enter your
samba servers name.
Hope this helps,

Subject: Getting Samba to become a member of an NT domain
I'm missing this step:
* First, create a machine account on the PDC for the client samba machine.
Since I'm using an actual NT Server as the PDC, then "follow normal
procedures for creating the machine account using the Server Manager".
I'm not sure what "follow normal procedures for creating the machine account
using the Server Manager" means?
When I run the command # /usr/local/samba/bin/smbpasswd -j PERLMUTER on my
client samba machine, I get the following errors:
# /usr/local/samba/bin/smbpasswd -j PERLMUTER
cli_net_auth2: Error NT_STATUS_NO_TRUST_SAM_ACCOUNT
cli_nt_setup_creds: auth2 challenge failed
modify_trust_password: unable to setup the PDC credentials to machine PP01.
r was : NT_STATUS_NO_TRUST_SAM_ACCOUNT.
2000/11/03 09:29:51 : change_trust_account_password: Failed to change
or domain PERLMUTER.
Unable to join domain PERLMUTER.
Do you have any suggestons?
