The 'add machine script' and 'add user script' is very
handy in creating samba user accounts and joining
machines to domain.

However, the 'add machine script' needs to first
create a 'unix account' in order for samba to proceed
and create the necessary SID entry. This unix account
is no longer used after this process(at least I have
deleted it and not seeing any side effect yet). So is
it possible to bypass the 'uid must exist first'
requirment ?
