I am using unixsam.  This is what I have in my smb.conf.

passdb backend = tdbsam unixsam

So If I understand Andrew's response correctly, then I won't need a
guest account, right?

I have samba version 2.999+3.0.alpha20-3 which is the latest from the
debian archives.

We got it working using Samba 3.0 alpha 21 cvs. Configured as a PDC 
using LDAP as the passdb. Encountered the same problem of being able to 
join the domain and yet not being able to log in. Line in smb.conf looks

like this :

passdb backend = ldapsam:ldap://ldap.internal.avlsi.com, unixsam

Solution came from Andrew Bartlette who gave the following response:

You either need to keep the 'unixsam' in your 'passdb backends' line in
your smb.conf, or add a 'guest' account to ldap, with a real unix UID
(possibly the same as nobody, should be the same as 'guest account') and
with RID 501.
