I tried to add a computer to a Samba domain using another account 
(testuser) than root.
I use LDAP for authentication and added the account (testuser) with uid=0 
in ldap. If I use this account to add an computer to the domain I get the 
error: "Access is denied".

And in the samba log:

[2003/10/31 14:49:57, 0] libsmb/smbencrypt.c:decode_pw_buffer(260)
   decode_pw_buffer: incorrect password length (-1763543070).

I know from previous posts that it's necessary to have an uid=0. But are 
there any other requirements. I also added this testuser to the domain 
admin group directive in samba. I use samba 2.2.8a.
