Axel, try using the smbldap-tools (Perl scripts) from
I've been using smbldap-useradd.pl for the "add user" directive, works
like a charm.

"add user" works - just make sure to specify that it's a machine account:

add user script = /usr/local/sbin/smbldap-useradd.pl -w %u

BTW, these scripts make dealing with other tasks regarding account
management much easier, too. Take a look at smbldap-populate.pl - can
save you a lot of time.
