Let me see if I could understand.
You need to create one account - trust account - to each one of your machines (the
machine name with the suffix "$". For example: "win101$"). This accounts have a
password auto-generated for samba in the smbpasswd file and anyone password in the
*nix system. Then, you need make anything similar to the following steps:
useradd -c "station" -d /dev/null -s /bin/false machine_name$
smbpasswd -a -m machine_name$
To remove the machine and recreate them:
smbpasswd -x machine_name$
If you delete or try to create one without the other, this error happens.
I hope this help you.
