   I've used the idealx tutorial 
(http://samba.idealx.org/smbldap-howto.en.html), almost everything is 
fine, i can access the home directories and view shares, but when i try 
to join the domain i get the error:
"while attempting to join the domain DOMAIN the user could not be found"
   When i look in ldap the machine acount was created and in 
/var/log/samba there is no error log (it creates e logfile for the 
machine, but it is kept empty).
   Can someone help us??
