I figured it out, my problem was I wan't using the -U root option...
smbpasswd -j 192.168.1.2 -r server -U root
The system asked me for the password, and voila. Now 192.168.1.2 is the
address of my domain server. Could I have substituted the address for
the name of the domain? If I understand the doc properly, that's what I
should have done.

Subject: [Samba] Joining a standalone samba server to a samba hosted
I have a samba domain setup at home (called sambanet). I have an XP Pro
login on to the domain. I've setup a second Samba Server, which I'm
trying to create a machine account for.
On my Samba Server (not my domain), this is the Global setup I have
workgroup = SAMBANET
netbios name = MAIL
server string = MAIL server
security = DOMAIN
encrypt passwords = Yes
obey pam restrictions = Yes
password server = server
pam password change = Yes
passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
passwd chat = *New*password* %n\n *Retype*new*password* %n\n
unix password sync = Yes
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
max log size = 0
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
preferred master = No
local master = No
domain master = No
dns proxy = No
wins server = 192.168.1.2
guest ok = Yes
printing = cups
On my server, I'm tying to create the machine account with the following
[root at mail root]# smbpasswd -j sambanet -r server
The result follows.
cli_net_req_chal: Error NT_STATUS_NOLOGON_WORKSTATION_TRUST_ACCOUNT
cli_nt_setup_creds: request challenge failed
modify_trust_password: unable to setup the PDC credentials to machine
SERVER. Error was : NT_STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL.
2003/05/14 15:03:33 : change_trust_account_password: Failed to change
or domain SAMBANET.
Unable to join domain SAMBANET.
