Sorry if my question confused the issues.
Anyway, I have a machine that joined my samba domain and now I want that 
nobody can continue to logon from that machine (It can happen sometimes) 
I tried to disable the machine with the command:
smbpasswd -d MACHINENAME$d
I still log on
So I tried to delete the machine from the smbpasswd and the passwd:
smbpasswd -x MACHINENAME$
I still log on
Thanx for any suggestion
