[Samba] Samba+PDC+LDAP...some success...need troubleshooting though

Well, I was finally able to add a workstation to my Samba PDC running LDAP
However, it is not actually doing it the way I would like to.
The problem I was running into is that the script I specified in my
smb.conf file to automatically add machine accounts is not working
correctly. In order to add my test machine to the PDC today, I had to
manually enter it. Although this is not too bad, I would prefer it be done
automatically through the script.
So what I am attempting to do know is find out why computers are not being
added automatically via the script.
I thought i'd post a few things here and see if anyone has any ideas.
My script in smb.conf:
add user script = /usr/local/sbin/smbldap-useradd.pl -w -d /dev/null -c
"Machine Account" -s /bin/false %u
domain admin group = @Administrators
I created a user called ldapadmin and added the account to the
Administrators group. I made sure the smbldap-useradd.pl script had root
Administrators rights to it.
I'm a little unclear as to why the script is not working correctly. Anyone
have any thoughts?
