Are you using 2.2 as a PDC? or are you using it in security=domain mode?
If you are using it as a PDC of its own domain, then you have to add unix
accounts of the form (netbiosmachinename$:*:uid:gid:comment::)
for each NT machine that will be part of the domain, as well as doing a
smbpasswd -a -m netbiosmachinename (without the $, it gets appended
automatically) to get your machine account into the smbpasswd file.
If you are using 2.2 as a member server in security=domain mode, you will
need to add a machine account via server manager to the nt domain that you
will be joining and run smbpasswd -j domainname -r pdcname
There is a good discussion of all of this in chapter 6 of the "Using Samba"
book by O'Reilly, which you can see online at the following url:

Subject: More woes
Probably missing something, but ...
I installed Samba 2.2aplha1 (Solaris 7, gcc 2.95.2) and everything
seems to work.
However I tried to joing the domain and was asked for a "machine" log-in.
Do I need to enter the Netbios name into the smbpasswd file ? or UNIX
pass file ?
Apart from that I could browse, see shares, printers etc.
