Hmm - that name is too long. Make sure it's 12 characters or less.

No - the workgroup should be the name of your workgroup or domain. To
function as a domain member, you set the workgroup to your domain name,
security to domain, and STUDIO54 will be your password server.

Samba uses the NetBIOS name, which is, by convention, the same as your
hostname. It doesn't have to be the same, but life is easier if it is...
After you've added the account from server manager, you'll need to join
the domain (smbpasswd -j DOM -r PDC).
