[Samba] Trying to configure a SAMBA 3 PDC with OpenLDAP

I have some problems trying to configure a PDC with OpenLDAP backend using Samba 3.0.1.

My LDAP server is working fine and has the samba templates.

I am able to configure users. The procedure I am using is I first create the user in the LDAP server using posixAccount, shadowAccount, etc. Then, as root, I write 

     smbpasswd -a user

and it works fine.

I get the same effect if I use 

     pdbedit -a -u borra

The user is able to mount a share in the server. At this point things are working great.

My first problem is that I have been unable to add machines.
I tried a similar procedure. First create the machine in the LDAP server (without sambaSamAccount) and then

     smbpasswd -m -a theMachine

I have tried everything including pdbedit and smbldap-tools 0.8.2.
I get the following errors when trying to add a machine called tuqueque using 

     smbpasswd -m -a tuqueque -D256

Netbios name list:-

The smbldap-tools 0.8.2 do not work at all. They do not even work for adding users (which I already solved using smbpasswd).

I have other questions:
I have read that I have to create some groups (Domain Admins, Domain Users, Domain Guests), but the procedure for doing that when using LDAP is not clear. I tried adding the groups to the LDAP server and then using something like

    net groupmap modify ntgroup="Domain Admins" unixgroup=domadmin

I get the following message:

     NT Group Domain Admins doesn't exist in mapping DB

Can somebody help me?

Here is my smb.conf:
hosts allow =
netbios name = BOA
workgroup = ICALUZ
security = user
encrypt passwords = yes
preferred master = yes
domain master = yes
local master = yes
domain logons = yes
os level = 33

ldap suffix = dc=ica,dc=luz,dc=ve
ldap admin dn = "cn=Manager,dc=ica,dc=luz,dc=ve"

idmap backend = ldap:ldap://localhost
idmap gid = 10000-20000
idmap uid = 10000-20000
ldap idmap suffix = ou=Idmap

passdb backend = ldapsam:ldap://localhost
ldap ssl = off
ldap delete dn = no
ldap user suffix = ou=Personas

ldap group suffix = ou=Grupos
ldap machine suffix = ou=Computadoras
#ldap filter = (&(uid=%u)(objectclass=sambaSamAccount))
ldap filter = (uid=%u)

logon path = \\%N\profiles\%u
logon drive = H:
logon home = \\homeserver\%u\winprofile
logon script = logon.cmd

log level = 2
log file = /var/lib/samba/%m.log

path = /var/lib/samba/netlogon
read only = yes
write list = ntadmin

path = /var/lib/samba/profiles
read only = no
create mask = 0644
directory mask = 0755


I have tried to follow the documentation, but it is somewhat confising when it refers to LDAP. It is never clear whether they are talking about the new style or the old Samba 2.x style. Maybe it is not completely updated.
Any help is appreciated.
