Creating machine trust account for NT

I've been trying to add a NT machine to a samba controlled domain following 
the instructions listed in the HOWTO collection.
When I try to add the machine, I get following error:

"Unable to add or change accounts on the domain. The account information 
entered does not grant sufficient privilege to create or change account".

I'm logged in as administrator at the NT machine and I create the machine 
account using the root account in smbpasswd.
If I give a wrong password I get the message: "Unable to connect to the 
domain controller for this domain. Either the user name or password entered 
is incorrect".

Has anybody else encountered this problem?

Kind regards,

Werner Maes
