I changed 'ldapsam' to read 'ldapsam_nua' and added:

non unix account range = 10000-20000

.. but I still couldn't join the domain. It says it couldn't allocate a
RID in that range. I looked at the log and noticed it does a search for
any users with the objectClass "sambaAccount" to see what the last used
RID was and for me it was RID 1000 so I changed that range to be
1000-2000 and now it doesn't join the domain either but that error is
I guess I'll try using the 'add machine script'. 

Do you happen to have a sample add-machine script I can take a look at?
