You should use your root password, not the one you setup for 
"cn=root,dc=dcc" to login into LDAP with.

Another approach will be to have some other normal user account (like 
Administrator) and specify it as a domain admin, by adding the following 
into smb.conf:

admin users = Administrator

Then you will need to use this user and its password to add machines 
into Domain. After authenticating as this user, Samba will become root 
and will use 'ldap admin' identity and the password set with 'smbpasswd 
-w' to access LDAP.

Hope it helps,
