Hi all!

Is it possible to just join to domain with samba's net command without
creating machine account again if it is already created?
Can winbind use machine account to authenticate itself to AD because I'm
not an admin of AD i can't use administrator account for value of
--set-auth-user option.
If that is possible how do I get machine account password? is it
possible to get with hexdump from secrets.tdb?
I'm using samba 3.0rc4.

Thanks in advance
