[Samba] Samba 3 PDC using LDAP as backend, what next ?

I have successfully setup a Samba PDC using a local
LAP as the password backend. After I have added the
first user 'testing' through pdbedit, some entries is
added to the LDAP server too.
However, when I tried to execute the 'net'
commands(any) or smbmount or testing out the
winbind(pam), all I get is error. So I just don't know
how to proceed from here.
Do I have to join this server to the domain(even it is
already the PDC) ?
My past experience with NT tells me that there are a
number of default entries in SAM when I have setup NT
as the PDC, do I have to recreate them in samba and if
I do, how ?
Below is the result of some usual commands that I can
at least run without any error, just in case it gives
a clue where I am now.
