[Samba] Add workstation to Samba PDC

I configured SAMBA as a stand alone PDC. However, when I try to add a workstation via its system properties dialog, the workstation tells me that the account I specified does not have the right to add workstations to the new domain. I created the account via SWAT Passwords, and it showed up in the smbpasswd file ok. There is a Linux account with the same name that has the same group memberships as the root account. But, I cannot see how to give it this specific right.  I would be grateful for any direction in this matter.

Thank you in advance for your time.
