Make sure the user 'gabriel' has NT administrator rights in samba.  What
you're doing here is in effect creating a machine account, and only
domain admins (or people with sufficient privileges) can do that.  Try
adding 'gabriel' to the list at smb.conf in the parameter 'domain admin
group' (look for it in "man smb.conf" for more details).  Either that,
or add a username for administrators.

Personally, I add a root user account to Samba, and create a username
map from "administrator" to "root".
