 There is OBVIOUSLY something wrong somewhere.
EITHER a WHOLE bunch of us are stupider than we thought, the documentation left off a step, or there is something SO blatently obvious that we are ALL staring it in the face and missing it inches in front of our faces.

This is exactly what I've had,  (BUT I *D*I*D*  have it running ok ...)
and I STILL havent figured it out yet,... 

Subject: [Samba] join domain problem with Samba 3.0 alpha18

..snip... I've compiled the SAMBA 3.0 alpha18 
with all default options and installed well. 

Then I would join my NT 4.0 machine using the following steps 
manually (not On the fly)
** I did same thing, both manually and from script too...***
# useradd -g groupid -d /dev/null  -c "comment" -s /bin/false
 -m  machine_name$
# passwd -l machine_name$
# smbpasswd -a -m machine_name$

(exact same steps/messages)
then I tried to join my NT4.0 to the Samba PDC, but it  failed with this message: "The machine account for this computer either does not exist  or is inaccessible".

> With Samba 2.2.5 it workes all right, also join domain. My Linux system is RedHead 7.1.

Mine was Samba 2.2.3, and then 2.2.5

To me this means we are ALL screwing something so basic up, that we're skipping over it.

More info: in my config (and I posted my machine/smbd/nmbd logs earlier) as well as in my messages/and other logs
I didnt see anything.

please help us!
