[Samba] Adding Samba Domain SIDs...

Our school district is moving to an LDAP database for mail and domain 
authentication.  We are seeing some errors in our logs we don't know how 
to resolve and need your help.  First, let me give a run down of what we 
have and what we are using:
RedHat 9.0
Samba 3.02 Pre 1
OpenLdap 2.1.22-3
Smbldaptools v. 0.83

We have a main campus where our Master LDAP database is located.  The 
Samba domain at this location is called BRYANT.  We have four wing 
locations which have Samba and LDAP installed (versions above).  The 
LDAP database from our main campus is being replicated to these wing 
locations over our IPSec VPN.  When we get Samba authenticating against 
the LDAP database at these locations - everything works fine except we 
see this error message in our logs:

Jan 23 08:39:05 desproxy smbd[15472]: [2004/01/23 08:39:05.863097, 1, 
pid=15472, effective(0, 0), real(0, 0)] 
Jan 23 08:39:05 desproxy smbd[15472]:   failed to add domain dn= 
sambaDomainName=DES,dc=bryantschools,dc=org with: Internal 
(implementation specific) error

Jan 23 08:39:05 desproxy smbd[15472]:   Adding domain info for DES 

On the second line above you see the domain name DES is trying to be 
entered into the LDAP database.  I assume it is trying to insert the 
servers SID and other important information into LDAP.  There are three 
other wing locations that have this same error in the logs.  What steps 
do we take to fix this?  Do we need to alter the way we are setting this 
up to make all this work.  I've noticed that adding Windows XP machines 
at these wing locations doesn't work and I assume it is because of this 
error.  Any assistance you can provide would be helpful!
