When adding machines to a Samba-2.2 controlled domain, the ‘add user

used to create the UNIX identity of the Machine Trust Account. Samba-3
a new ‘add machine script’ that must be specified for this purpose.
Samba-3 will not
fall back to using the ‘add user script’ in the absence of an ‘add
machine script’.
