I have the same problem. The only way I am able to add a machine is to:
1. Create the posix machine account using chpass (I run on FreeBSD)
2. smbpasswd -m -a Machine_Name
3. Use my ldap gui tool to edit the ldap entry created by smbpasswd
with the additional info.
'Tis a royal pain in the arse. Don't know why....haven't had time to
play with the smbldap_useradd.pl pearl script.
