If I'm not mistaken you need to use the NT Server
Administration Tools.

They can be downloaded from the Microsoft site.

Subject: [Samba] trouble connecting to domain controller

When trying to connect to the "Domain Controller" via the "Active
Directory Users and Computers" on Windows, I get that "cannot connect to
the pre-windows 2000 domain controller" under Windows, and the following
on Samba's logs:

[2004/11/25 02:21:11, 5] smbd/filename.c:unix_convert(328)
  New file netshellicon
[2004/11/25 02:21:11, 3] smbd/trans2.c:call_trans2qfilepathinfo(2371)
  call_trans2qfilepathinfo: SMB_VFS_STAT of netshellicon failed (No such
file or directory)
[2004/11/25 02:21:11, 3] smbd/error.c:error_packet(105)
  error string = No such file or directory
[2004/11/25 02:21:11, 3] smbd/error.c:error_packet(129)
  error packet at smbd/trans2.c(2240) cmd=50 (SMBtrans2)


Ps.: at this point samba is already acting as a PDC, and am logged on as
Administrator (on the samba domain) on the windows machine while doing
the previous operations.
