Yes, I used
/usr/bin/cpu useradd machine$ -d /dev/null -f
/etc/samba/scripts/machadd.cfg -F machine$ -L machine$ -g 511 -p xxx
to create a valid Unix user ( User object with posixAccount auxilliary class
extended ). Samba still does not add it's sambaSamAccount class if I create
the machine account this way. However, "smbpasswd -amn" works and I can join
the Windows box to the domain if I run both commands manually.

My problem seems to be, that *only* the "add machine script" script is
running, but Samba forgets to do it's own job ( adding the sambaSamAccount
aux. class to the user object ).
