Should have included this information
Smbpassword already includes a root user with uid  of 0.
Tried to join domain as XNET\root with root/samba root password ( unix and
smb passwords are the same).
Successfully joined domain using credentials from a different samba3 box.

Thanks for you quick reply

	Only root (User-ID 0) can add machines to a domain. Root must also 
	exists in your Samba-userlist.
