Never works right if you log in to server with one account and then you
try to join machine to network using different account - once you have
made connection to Samba as another user, you cannot then connect again
using root or Administrator.

Try logging out of Windows computer - logging back in and then joining
machine to domain 
user: <root>
password: <root-password-in-smbpasswd>
domain: <domain name>
